§ 19 . Mr. Leslie Huckfield
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer 2W Protection whether she is satisfied with the level and detail of information on profits submitted to her by companies in receipt of subsidies for bread and other food products.
§ Mrs. Shirley Williams
Profit margins are subject to the controls in the Price Code and as such are a matter for the Price Commission. I am satisfied that the subsidies benefit the consumer, not the manufacturer.
