HC Deb 08 December 1977 vol 940 c799W
Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Lord President of the Council what are the purchase prices of all cakes and pastries sold in the public cafeteria; what is the sale price of each item and what percentage mark up in price this represents on each item.

Dr. Reginald Bennett

I have been asked to reply.

Sale prices of cakes and pastries are as advertised in the Strangers' Cafeteria, and an overall gross profit of 40 per cent. is generally aimed at.

It is not the policy of the Catering Sub-Committee to make public the purchase price and the mark up of individual commodities.
