HC Deb 03 June 1965 vol 713 cc246-7W
40. Mr. Bence

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many manufacturers have applied for registration of their product for retail price maintenance; and how many have been refused such registration.

Mr. Jay

I understand from the Registrar that about 700 applications were received. About 50 of these were withdrawn by the applicants or rejected by the Registrar before registration.
