HC Deb 17 January 1974 vol 867 c151W
Mr. Alan Williams

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will take steps designed to prevent a black market developing in goods made scarce as a result of the three-day week.

Sir G. Howe

I believe that the business community is dealing with shortages as fairly as possible and I do not consider that steps by Government would at present be justified.
