asked the Minister of Food if he has now considered the evidence submitted to him by the Price Regulation Committee for the North Midland Region in relation to charges for board and lodging; and what additional powers he proposes to seek to deal with the matter.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food (Mr. Mahone):

The reply to the first part of my hon. and gallant Friend's Question is "Yes, Sir." As regards the second part, my right hon. and gallant Friend proposes to keep the subject under constant review, but he has seen no evidence up to the present which would justify him in taking additional powers as is suggested.
