A Sub-committee was appointed by the Standing Committee on Trusts under the Profiteering Acts to inquire into the existence of a trade combination in the tobacco industry, and into the effect which its operations has on prices and on the trade generally. The Sub-committee reported on 13th December, 1919, and the Report was published as Cmd. 558 (1920). In these circumstances, I do not think that a new inquiry would serve any useful purpose.
