HC Deb 24 March 1960 vol 620 c60W
61. Mr. Mackie

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that the price of imported plywood has risen by over 40 per cent. since 1951; and what action he proposes, by the reimposition of price control or otherwise, to restore a more equitable price level.

Mr. Maudling

The hon. Member is misinformed. Prices of imported plywood in February, 1960, were appreciably lower than they were under price control at the end of 1951.
