HC Deb 14 December 1979 vol 975 c805W
Mr. Jim Callaghan

asked the Secretary of State for Trade, further to the reply of the Minister for Consumer Affairs, Official Report, 19 June, c. 505, if he has had any representations from brewers concerning price increases after 1 January 1980.

Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

None. I would remind the hon. Member that the assurances referred to in my earlier reply were given by two companies only and expire at the end of the year. Firms generally are not now obliged to pre-notify price increases either to the Price Commission or to my Department.
