Mr. Rankin

asked the President of the Board of Trade, what action he proposes to take to deal with the continuing increases in the prices of manufactured goods.

Mr. Darling

My right hon. Friend has written to a number of manufacturers and trade associations about some recent price increases and he and other Board of Trade Ministers will shortly be holding meetings with them. As regards future policy, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given on 19th January to my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton, North-East (Mrs. Renee Short) by my right hon. Friend the First Secretary.
