HC Deb 04 December 1967 vol 755 c234W
Mr. Edward Lyons

asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs whether, in order to prevent an artificial acceleration of demand and hoarding of imported wines and foreign luxury goods to anticipate the effects of devaluation, he will permit an immediate increase in prices of existing stocks and thereby reduce and delay the expenditure of foreign currency necessary for their replacement.

Mr. Frederick Lee

Normally stocks of goods imported prior to devaluation should not be increased in price.
