HC Deb 25 March 1971 vol 814 cc201-2W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food to what extent the Government's Farm Price Review will affect the wholesale and retail price of meat, milk, eggs, dairy produce, poultry, sugar, cakes, biscuits and manufactured foods; and how long it will take for the expected 8 per cent. to 10 per cent. rise in retail food prices to reach the shop purchaser.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

There is no basis for suggesting that the Annual Review determinations will result in a large increase in food prices, and I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to him on 23rd March.—[Vol. 814, c. 81.]
