§ 62. Mrs. Joyce Butler
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what amplification he intends to make in the retail food prices survey to enable specific food price movements to be charted.
§ Mr. Hoy
The fortnightly reports published by this Department, which are based on a survey of retail food prices, are designed to indicate significant recent trends in these prices. We are keeping these reports under review but it would be wasteful for us to duplicate the detailed information about specific food prices and their movements which is now being published monthly by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity.
