asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many houses were started and completed during 1974; and how these figures compare with each of the previous five years.

The information is as follows:maximum prices for standard loaves in five areas of the United Kingdom. These reflect the traditional pattern of regional differentials based on the higher transport costs incurred in supplying bread to the areas concerned. In Wales the maximum prices for these loaves in the counties of Clwyd, Dyfed—excluding the District of Ceredigion—and Gwynedd are ½p per loaf above those in the other parts of Wales; in the District of Ceredigion the differential is 2p on a large and 2½p on a small loaf.Prices in the shops may not exceed these maxima or the prices charged on 20th March 1974, whichever are the lower, plus in either case the increases recently authoriesd by the Bread Prices (Amendment) Order 1975. Actual prices are, therefore, likely to reflect the variations in operation on that date.
