HC Deb 04 April 1974 vol 871 cc412-3W
Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if she can now say which commodities she is considering as suitable for the application of a subsidy; and what is the estimated cost in each case.

Mr. Maclennan

The Government have already announced subsidies on milk, butter and bread. I am considering schemes for other basic foodstuffs and shall let the House have details of our further proposals as soon as possible.
