HC Deb 29 April 1968 vol 763 c123W
Mr. Speed

asked the Minister of Labour how many prices have been reduced as a result of abolition of resale price maintenance under the Resale Prices Act; and to what goods these prices relate.

Mr. Dell

I have been asked to reply.

The effect of ending resale price maintenance is to enable individual traders to reduce prices on their own initiative and it would not be practicable to collect detailed information about the thousands of individual decisions involved. There is no reason to doubt that many reductions have been made.
