HC Deb 26 January 1960 vol 616 cc3-4W
56. Mr. Owen

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a further statement on results achieved following his appeal to industrial and financial interests to make a contribution to reduce the cost of living.

57. Mr. Collick

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what results have followed from his appeals to business and trading interests for a reduction in prices and in the cost of living; and what further proposals he has to bring clown prices.

Mr. Amory

It is not possible to establish the results, in terms of actual prices. of the statements I have addressed to industrial and commercial managements. My main object has been to secure a continuance of stability over the whole field of consumer prices, and up to now I am glad to say this has been attained. 1 hope my remarks have improved the chances of maintaining this stability.
