HC Deb 06 December 1972 vol 847 c446W
107. Mr. Sheldon

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many cases of price increases in contravention of Section 2 of the Counter-Inflation (Temporary Provisions) Act are known to his Department; and how many firms are involved.

Sir G. Howe

Only a small number of cases appearprima facie to infringe the standstill. Only one firm is involved in each of the cases currently under investigation.
