§ Mr. Biffen
asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs, approximately how the 5,500 letters received by the National Board for Prices and Incomes are divided between those on subjects under reference to the Board and those suggesting new subjects that might be referred to the Board.
§ Mr. Frederick Lee
I understand that rather more than 300 of the letters related to subjects under inquiry by the Board. The remainder were making suggestions for new references, or seeking information, or drawing the Board's attention to general price and income movements.
