asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that some tradesmen are offering goods, such as tea, at less than the fixed price stated on the package; that they are threatened with victimisation if they continue to do so; and if he will take steps to refer this practice to the Monopolies Commission.
§ 92. Mr. Mellish
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the restrictive practices in the grocery trade whereby wholesalers associations stop supplies to retailers who sell goods such as tea below a fixed price; and if he will refer this aspect of restraint of trade to the Monopolies Commission.
