HC Deb 16 December 1974 vol 883 c299W
6. Mr. Townsend

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if she will make a statement on the workings of the voluntary code.

Mr. Maclennan

Since May the agreement items as a whole have increased in price only half as much as the retail price index. I am grateful to the trade for its co-operation and have recently reaffirmed the continued importance the Government attach to the agreement.
