Vol. 192 No. 3

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Flour and Bread Prices.


asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce if it is proposed to reduce the price of flour and bread in view of the increased usage of imported wheat anticipated during the coming year.

Flour and bread prices were freed from control in 1957 and I am not in a position to forecast future price movements. The Deputy will no doubt have seen press reports of 5th November, 1961 regarding reductions of 3/9d. a sack in bakers' flour and 5/- a sack in shop flour.
