HC Deb 02 May 1977 vol 931 c5W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection how many increases in the price of home heating oil have been asked for, and how many approved, under the Price Code; and what has been the total percentage increase since 1970.

Mr. Hattersley

Questions about the number of price increases notified to the Price Commission are for the Price Commission itself. Up to March 1977 the price of home heating oil rose by 276 per cent. over the average for 1970.
