§ 9. Mr. Dodsworth
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if she will make a statement about the effect of the Price Code on investment.
§ Mrs. Shirley Williams
I amended the Price Code 15 months ago to introduce a new investment relief, and on 22nd January of this year I extended the relief for a further period. In reviewing prices policy I am taking full account of the importance of industrial investment.
