HC Deb 31 July 1946 vol 426 cc198-9W
110. Mr. Touche

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the exorbitant prices demanded by some photographers in London for passport photographs; and if he will impose a price control in this matter.

Mr. Marquand

Very few complaints are received about prices charged for passport photographs. I am afraid the results which could be achieved by price control of a service of such varying quality and cost would not justify the large amount of work which would be involved in the preparation and enforcement of a system of control.
