Pocket Lighters (Petrol Price).

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce. – in the House of Commons on 4th August 1942.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. De la Bère:

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is now in a position to make a statement regarding the Government's intention to impose a price regulation on the sale of petrol for pocket lighters, in view of the many instances where the public have been called on to pay for this petrol in small bottles at a rate that works out at over £2 per gallon?

Yes, Sir. I expect to receive recommendations for the making of a Maximum Prices Order from the Central Price Regulation Committee this week.
