HC Deb 23 April 1964 vol 693 cc199-200W
52. Mr. Edelman

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development whether he is aware that E.M.I. Records Limited have withdrawn the arrangements by which discounts are payable on records sup- plied by this company to education authorities; and what steps he has taken to secure the reinstatement of this concession.

Mr. D. Price

The giving or withholding of discounts by any individual trader is a question for his commercial judgment. My right hon. Friend has no power to intervene in such a matter.
