HC Deb 20 May 1981 vol 5 c84W
Mr. Marlow

asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether, pursuant to the answer of the right hon. Member for Gloucester (Mrs. Oppenheim) of 6 May, Official Report, c. 48, he will take steps, including an official survey if necessary, to satisfy himself of the accuracy of the petroleum industry's estimate that 60 per cent. of all petrol pumps cannot register prices greater than 99p per gallon.

Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

I am satisfied that all reasonable and adequate steps have been taken to obtain this information. If my hon. Friend has specific evidence that the estimate given may be incorrect I would be grateful if he would write to me.
