HC Deb 11 March 1948 vol 448 c184W
Mr. McKie

asked the Minister of Supply whether, in view of the constantly rising price of cartridges, he will consider fixing a price control for those articles, which are essential in the interest of agricultural production in order that vermin may be kept down.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

Increased manufacturing costs and purchase tax have affected the price of cartridges, but we are at present considering whether there should be further price control.
