HC Deb 16 December 1969 vol 793 c298W
112. Mr. Higgins

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity whether increases in prices which flowed inevitably from the effect of devaluation on import prices have been permitted under the prices and incomes policy.

Mr. Harold Walker

The need for price increases to take account of the effects of devaluation was specifically recognised in paragraph 14 of the White Paper "Productivity, Prices and Incomes Policy in 1968 and 1969" (Cmnd. 3590).
