Major Lloyd George:

The difference between the fixed grower's price and the maximum retail price is apportioned on the following basis: to wholesalers, from 40s. to 55s. per ton depending on the distance of transport; to retailers, from 50s. to 62s. 6d. per ton according to the variety and class of potato. These are maximum margins which are reduced by competition.
