HC Deb 26 January 1948 vol 446 c80W
31. Mr. Hare

asked the Minister of Food whether he has yet any announcement to make on the margin of profit to be allowed to retailers of sweets and confectionery as from 1st January, 1948.

Mr. Strachey

The new prices, which come into force at the end of February, should give distributors an overall margin of about £23 million a year on a 30z. ration, compared with about £24 million on the 40z. ration.
