asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that retailers are unable to make any profit on the sale of Australian fruit cake, which has a controlled selling price of 2s. 6d. a pound, as there is no controlled wholesale price; and whether he will either increase the controlled retail selling price or remove the price control altogether.

This suggestion would have to be considered in relation to the prices of other cakes and flour confectionery. I will look into the matter and let the hon. Member know the result.
