79. Mr. W. T. Williams
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that certain firms have refused to supply goods to co-operative societies; and what action he will take to end such discriminatory restrictions against cooperative societies.
Mr. H. Wilson
I am aware of instances of this practice, which is usually connected with the operation of resale price maintenance. As I said in the Debate on the Budget proposals on 20th April, we are now considering what proposals it will be necessary to bring forward in regard to resale price maintenance.
