asked the Minister of Food if he is now in the position to make a statement on the effects of lifting the 5s. maximum on meal charges in hotels and restaurants.
I hope to make a statement very soon.
Can the Minister say whether there is any sign yet of the popular outcry which was prophesied by the Minister of National Insurance if this maximum were abolished?
The situation remains the same as it was when that question was put to me before by the hon. Gentleman.
