HC Deb 26 April 1951 vol 487 c94W
80. Mr. Erroll

asked the President of the Board of Trade at what c.i.f. prices he is permitting the importation of sulphuric acid from continental countries at the present time; and how these prices compare with the maximum permitted prices for home produced acid.

Mr. Bottomley

The c.i.f. values of the sulphuric acid so far imported vary between £16 and £28 per ton dependent on the strength and purity of the acid. These are estimated to be around three to four times the prices charged for similar acid produced in this country.
