HC Deb 02 May 1977 vol 931 cc2-3W
24. Mr. Penhaligon

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if he will introduce legislation forcing manufacturers of packaged food items to mark their goods with their recommended price at the time of manufacture.

Mr. John Fraser

Although the Price Commission Bill contains certain powers to deal with recommended prices following a report from the Price Commission, the Bill does not contain the express power to do what the hon. Member suggests.
