HC Deb 28 May 1968 vol 765 c189W
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.
