HC Deb 17 October 1950 vol 478 c228W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the President of the Board of Trade why, when issuing permission for sales of goods at home or abroad, he makes it a condition that a percentage of the goods so sold shall include goods from stocks held by the Government at a price fixed by the Government even though it is higher than the market price.

Mr. Rhodes

I am not clear as to the kind of transaction to which the hon. Member refers, but I shall be pleased to look into any particular case he may have in mind.
