§ 67. Mr. C. S. Taylor
asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that retailers are unable to make any profit on the sale of Australian fruit cake, which has a controlled selling price of 2s. 6d. a pound, as there is no controlled wholesale price; and whether he will either increase the controlled retail selling price or remove the price control altogether.
§ Dr. Summerskill
This suggestion would have to be considered in relation to the prices of other cakes and flour confectionery. I will look into the matter and let the hon. Member know the result.
