HC Deb 22 January 1987 vol 108 c719W
Mr. Freud

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list in the Official Report information available to him on the unit retail price for condoms in each European Economic Community country.

Mr. Newton

[pursuant to his reply, 14 January 1987, c. 206]: The manufacturer's recommended retail price for a condom in this country ranges from about 16p–24p (including VAT). Information in this form for other European Community countries is not collected. Inquiries of a leading United Kingdom manufacturer suggest, though, that the unit retail price of their products is lower in the United Kingdom, sometimes considerably so, than in other EC countries.
