HC Deb 25 June 1974 vol 875 c444d W
Mr. Eldon Griffiths

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if she has on her staff any person who has himself or herself owned or managed a retail shop.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

No staff have been appointed with this experience in mind, although some may possess it incidentally. My Department maintains close contact with the representative organisations of the retail trade.
