HC Deb 19 December 1975 vol 902 cc894-5W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection whether she is satisfied that representations to her Department by fine art auctioneers in connection with the newly introduced buyers' premium have been made independently from one another.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

Only one firm of auctioneers has been in direct contact with my Department on this matter. The inquiry by the Price Commission into the operation of the premium is a matter for the Commission.
