HC Deb 28 June 1951 vol 489 cc156-7W
69. Mr. Gibson

asked the President of the Board of Trade for an estimate of what would be the cost in additional subsidies of maintaining the prices at their then level of the goods covered by Orders permitting increased maximum prices issued since 5th March this year and listed in HANSARD for 14th June, columns 2505 and 2506.

Mr. Rhodes:

I am sorry that it is not practicable to make such an estimate.
