HC Deb 05 June 1962 vol 661 c40W
53. Mr. Holt

asked the President of the Board of Trade, in view of the changed situation caused by the continued rise in the cost of living, whether he will introduce emergency legislation in advance of the review to eliminate restrictive practices which raise prices to the customer.

Mr. N. Macpherson

I assume that the hon. Gentleman is thinking of legislation on resale price maintenance. My right hon. Friend is still studying this matter in the light of the inquiry undertaken last year by his officials and I am not yet able to make a statement about the Government's intentions.
