§ Mr. David Price
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if she will give the reasons why she decided, in amending the Bread Prices Order 1975 (S.I., 1975, No. 1245) by the Bread Prices Amendment (No. 4) Order 193W 1975, to allow a bread loaf to be bagged in a wrapping made of plastics in addition to being wrapped in two wrappings made of waxed paper.
§ Mr. Maclennan
The Bread Prices (Amendment) (No. 4) Order 1975 is not concerned with the authorisation of the form of wrapping of bread. It amends the Bread Prices Order 1975 to take account of recent major developments in wrapping methods. One of its provisions ensures that consumers cannot be charged more for bread simply because the method of wrapping has been changed.
