asked the Minister of Food whether, in view of the present lack of uniformity of practice and the concern of housewives in this matter, he will consult with the fishmongering trade with a view to ensuring that prices of fish on sale are always displayed.

Many fishmongers already display price tickets and are well aware that it is in the best interests of their trade to do so. Some months before price control was lifted one of the trade associations offered special price tickets for sale to their members and these are still available. The practice of displaying prices has increased during the past year, and I do not think that any action on my part is necessary to emphasise to the trade the desirability of continuing and extending it.
