Transcript 28 GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. (h) Can the Government fix the price of bread ? (Note that we must be wilUng to pay such a price as will secure us supplies from every part ot the globe, so that control of supply is impossible. What the Government could do would be to fix a sliding scale for the retail price, varying according to the world- price of wheat. This would protect us from the exactions of dealers and bakers, but would not prevent the bulk of the price- variations.) There ia, however, nothing to prevent the Food Controller from fixing a maximum price for bread, itself, making all the purchases abroad, supplying the wheat to the mills at a corresponding fixed price, and taking his chance of being able to purchase supplies within that price, paying any losses out of the vote of credit. This course was actually taken in 1917, at a cost to the Exchequer of about £35,000,000 a year. (What would be the results of ' communisation of hread"?) (i) What will be the effect of the proposed new fiscal arrangements upon prices? D.—The Go-operative Movement. There are to-day still only 3} million co-operators, and these are at present more inclined to maintain their "divi.' than to reduce prices. The enforcement of the Excess Profits Tax and the threatened Income Tax is, however, producing a strong tendency in the Co-operative Movement towards paying a lower dividend (say a uniform shilling)—with what effect on prices? The Movement already possesses considerable estates in West Africa and Ceylon, and has recently established 2,000 pigs on land of its own in Ireland; suppose the proposals of the Shillito League are progressively put into effect, and Co- operators not only manufacture for themselves and run their own fleet of steamers, but come to own the sources of production, what would be the results on prices, membership, industrial and scnial conditions, etc.? !
