§ The Under-Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection (Mr. Robert Maclennan)
The approximate increases were 75 per cent. in 1974, 5 per cent. in 1975 and 2 per cent. in the first nine months of 1976.
§ Mr. Maclennan
I do not agree with the hon. Gentleman. The increase in the price of petrol has been substantially below that of inflation generally.
