§ 34. Mr. William Hamilton
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many increases in the price of beer there have been since June 1970; and what is the total increase expressed as a percentage of the price per pint.
§ Mrs. Fenner
The price of beer used in the Index of Retail Prices has risen by 18 per cent. between June 1970 and November 1973. This is based on price movements for a large variety of bottled and draught beers.
