HC Deb 11 November 1952 vol 507 c16W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Labour if he will give the latest retail prices index figure; and to what extent this takes into account the increases in the price of rationed foods made on 5th October, 1952.

Mr. Watkinson

At 16th September, 1952, the retail prices index figure was 136. The increases in the prices of rationed foods made on 5th October will be reflected in the figure for 14th October, which is not yet available.
