§ Mrs. Knight
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if he will refer to the Price Commission the rise in cost from £130.50 to £281 of the Peters Speech Trainer for hearing-impaired children.
§ Mr. John Fraser
I do not consider that a reference under Schedule 1 to the Counter-Inflation Act 1973 would be appropriate. Price increases must comply with the Price Code. Questions about particular increases are for the Price Commission, with which the increase in the price of this equipment has been raised by users' representatives.
