Dr MALONEY (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

In the event of the British Government passing legislation to prevent profiteering, will he request his Cabinet to consider a bill to check the prices of foods such as bread and meat, with the object of providing that bread sold over the counter shall be sold at a fair price based upon the selling price of wheat, and meat sold over the counter shall be sold at a price fairly proportionate with the wholesale price of meat in the carcass, such prices to be based on the monthly average of sales of wheat and meat?
