§ Mr. Biffen
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many notices have been served under Section 4 of the Counter-Inflation (Temporary Provisions) Act; and if he will list the scope of each notice.
§ Sir G. Howe
Eighteen notices have been given by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry under the Counter-Inflation (Temporary Provisions) Act 1972. These prevented increases in domestic air fares which otherwise would have been made on 1st January 1973. No other notices have been given and no orders relating to price increases have been made.
