HC Deb 08 November 1974 vol 880 c268W
Mr. Pardoe

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection when she expects to publish the report of the inquiry into the gap between farmgate prices and the prices the housewife pays for meat.

Mr. Maclennan

The in-depth study of meat and poultry prices on which the Price Commission is now engaged is complex and bound to take a considerable time. But my right hon. Friend has asked the chairman of the commission to give it top priority.
