§ 22. Mr. Webster
asked the Minister of Power in what circumstances a price increase by one of the nationalised fuel industries will not be referred to the National Board for Prices and Incomes.
§ Mr. Freeson
A proposed price increase will not be referred to the N.B.P.I. when, in the Government's view, it is not a major one and there are no other circumstances which make independent investigation by the National Board desirable.
