§ Mr. Sheldon
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he is satisfied that the great majority of retailers have adjusted their prices fairly in respect of selective employment tax savings.
§ Mr. Emery
Yes. The overall response from major retailers to whom my right hon. and learned Friend the Minister for Trade and Consumer Affairs wrote on this point has been very satisfactory. Monitoring by weights and measures inspectors has shown that in the great majority of cases prices have been adjusted fairly.
