§ 83. Sir Wavell Wakefield
asked the Minister of Food why the price to fish-paste manufacturers of cases of salmon has recently been raised from 73s. per case to 93s. 6d. per case, in view of the Government's policy of price reduction.
§ Dr. Summerskill
This increase in the price of imported canned salmon to manufacturers, which was initiated before the announcement of Government price policy, was part of a general revision of canned fish prices to accord with current costs and was adopted to avoid loss to the Ministry.
