HC Deb 16 February 1968 vol 758 c428W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the President of the Board of Trade why he refers price increases to the National Board for Prices and Incomes; why he ignored the report of the Board against price increases by the International Publishing Corporation; and what action he proposes to take to enforce these price proposals in the same way as wage increases.

Mr. Darling:

References are made where it appears in the national interest that the justification for the increases should be independently examined. As regards the increase in price of the international Publishing Corporation'sDaily MirrorI have nothing to add to the Answer I gave to my hon. Friend on 7th February.—[Vol. 758, c.134.]
