HC Deb 19 July 1983 vol 46 c73W
Q34. Mr. Freud

asked the Prime Minister whether Her Majesty's Government will make available information on food prices and recommended diets for the unemployed.

The Prime Minister

Information on the average retail prices of about 80 items of food, derived from material collected for purposes of the retail prices index, is published each month by the Department of Employment inEmployment Gazette—table 6.3. As I said in reply to a question on 30 June, how the unemployed spend their money is entirely a matter for their choice.
