HC Deb 12 June 1961 vol 642 c14W
90. Mr. de Freitas

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he is aware that the price of a loaf of bread has been increased three times in just over a year; and whether there has been any corresponding increase in the quality or size of the loaf.

Mr. Soames

I am aware of the increases in the price of bread. There has been no change in the prescribed weight of the standard loaf. I do not think it would be appropriate for me to give an opinion about quality as this is so much a matter of individual taste.
