§ Dr. Summerskill
The former maximum control price for brussels sprouts at this time of the year was 6½d. per lb. My information is that the average retail price in England and Wales during the week ended 18th January was 10d. and in Scotland about 11½d. per lb. These prices show an increase of about 54 per cent. and 77 per cent. respectively over former price control levels. There remain good supplies of savoys at reasonable prices and I do not therefore intend to re-impose price control on brussels sprouts, the season for which is now nearing its end.
