Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that since devaluation the price of bath size toilet soap has risen by 20 per cent.; and what action he proposes to take to reduce the price of this toilet soap to its pre-devaluation level.

Mr. Darling

My Department is not aware of a 20 per cent. price increase in any brand of bath size toilet soap since devaluation.
