HC Deb 05 July 1971 vol 820 c297W
Dame Joan Vickers

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many firms have indicated to him that as from 5th July they will be cutting the prices of their goods.

Mr. Higgins

There is no requirement that price reductions should be notified to the Government, but my hon. Friend will have noted that price reductions have been announced in a large number of advertisements and Press releases.
