PRICE CONTROLS
IT will be remembered that. with effect
from the 15th July, 1953. price controls on
a number of imported articles were
removed. At that time it was announced
that this step had been taken in view of
the adequate supplies of most goods and
the exp station that freer competition
would operate ;o reduce prices and that
price levels of all goods would continue to
be ohs-rv-d with the view to the re-impo-
sition of controls should that appear
necessa -y.
2. Experience over the past year has
shown that the removal of price controls
has been justified. It has now been
decided to remove controls on the prices
of all imported goods and a Prices Control
(Amendment) Order, 1954, has been made,
and is published in this issue of the
Official Gazette the effect of which iill
be to delete, from 1st August. 1954, the
second schedule to the Prices Control
Consolidation Order, 1953. The situation
will continue to be carefully obs rved in
order that such steps as may be necessary
may be laken should retail prices of any
imported item reach an unduly high level.
3. It should be understood that the
prices of local meat and tish remain
controlled.
