HC Deb 02 July 1979 vol 969 cc425-6W
32. Mr. Alexander

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will consider amending the format of press notices on prospective food prices.

Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

In the light of a review of its value and effectiveness, I have concluded that the weekly press notice on prospective fresh food prices is of limited practical assistance to consumers and that it should therefore be discontinued in the interests of economy.
