§ Mr. Lewis
asked the Paymaster-General whether he is aware that the wholesale price of petrol has recently been reduced by ¾d. a gallon and although the wholesale price of petrol is now lower than at the outbreak of the Suez war, the retail 109W price is still ½d. a gallon above this pre-Suez war price; and whether, in view of this further information, he will reintroduce price control on petrol.
§ Sir I. Horobin
The answer to the first part of the Question is "Yes", and to the second part "No".
