Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

of Commons last week Mr. Parker asked the Minister of Transport whether he was aware that gross profiteering Was still taking place over the removal of furniture belonging to the homeless or evacuated.

The Minister replied that he had no evidence to that effect.

He added that he was investigating all cases of alleged profiteering brought to his notice and had, so far, found only a few cases of overcharge. In

these he had secured adjustments, either by refund or by reduction in estimates. The situation would continue -to be watched and the possibility of controlling removal charges borne in mind.

Mr. Thorne then suggested regulating the prices per mile according to space required in the vehicle, but Lieut.-COI. Moore-Brabazon said there were difficulties, one being getting furniture out of damaged houses., in the black-out.
