§ 90. Sir W. Wakefield
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the obscurity as to the meaning of the Miscellaneous Goods (Maximum Prices) (Amendment No. 10) Order, 1952, No. 311, Goods and Services (Price Control) Miscellaneous Goods (Maximum Prices); what effect this Order will have on prices; and if he will take steps to ensure that Orders issued by him have a clear statement in the Explanatory Note as to what is meant in the Order.
§ Mr. P. Thorneycroft
No. The Explanatory Note makes it clear that the effect of this Order is that the Order which it amends now applies to typewriters and domestic woodware only. Supplies of other goods formerly covered 73W by the Order are, generally speaking, plentiful, and there has been no general rise in their prices since decontrol.
