HC Deb 14 June 1979 vol 968 c298W
Mr. Meacher

asked the Secretary of State for Trade by what percentage are price rises announced since 3 May estimated to raise the cost of living by the time they have fully worked through.

Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

The hon. Member must be aware that an complete list of changes in retail prices since 3 May is not available, and that many of the price rises announced since 3 May have resulted from the policies of the Government of which he was a member and not from policies of this Government.
