HC Deb 26 March 1970 vol 798 c504W
62. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Technology what is the result of his consideration of the application by the Ford Motor Company, to increase car prices by £30; on what date the increase will be allowed to take place; and why such applications are not kept confidential.

Dr. Ernest A. Davies

Any information which the Government receives under the Early Warning arrangements is confidential. The extent to which individual companies disclose their intentions is a matter for their own commercial judgement.
