HC Deb 24 February 1977 vol 926 c705W
Mr. Mayhew

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what were the reasons for his decision not to refer to the Price Commission the proposal to increase from £5 to £50 the fee for the transfer of cherished numbers; and whether he will now refer it to the Commission.

Mr. Horam

Neither my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection nor ourselves think it appropriate to refer a matter such as this to the Price Commission.
