HC Deb 16 November 1971 vol 826 c80W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food why he will not take steps to appoint an independent committee of investigation into the matter of food distributors profiteering out of the conversion to decimal currency.

Mr. Prior

Because I am satisfied that most traders are seeking to play fair with their customers and that any temporary difficulties will be overcome as people become more familiar with the new money.
