THE SHILLING LOAF. j o I Non-Coitiplying Baker Gtves Smne Figures. Z Meeting the Swansea baker interviewed i last week a Leader representative had a furthei taik, and it may be pointed out here that he is a well-known tradesman of Swansea and has had 30 years' experi- ence in the trade, and is prepared to face publicity ii necessary to substantiate his contention that lld. provides a sufficient maiget of profit on the 4lb. loaf. What do you think of the Taibaeh Co-operative Society's statement? You know that they are selling at 9d.?" hei was asked. Yes. I have figured it out, and I am convinced that no profit can be made by them. They must rely upon the profits from the grocery business- The action has been brought about by unionism in this case, of course The other tradesmen in tho district cannot allow them to under- cut them to that extent, and the millers have no doubt been forced by the Master Bakers' Association in the district. But I still agre<' that the Is. for a 41b. loaf is exorbitant. I have not raised the price of my bread, and I am ?ot goin? to, either I contend I can make a satisfactory profit at lid., and I won't charge more. Things are expensive enough as they were with- out needlessly raising the staple food of the working-man. The people can stand much, but there's a limit. I am going no nearer that limit than I am now. Mind vnu. 1 am a business man, and 1 want a profit, but I am content with a fair profit, and I consider 'hat lid. represents a fair profit. So I won't charge the Is." Has anything been done with regard to the flour ? Not that I know, and I see no justifi- cation for it. When I came to Swansea o1) years ago 2s. 6d. profit on a sack was considered all right, and now, at present prices, there's a nrofit of IPs. on a sack Surely no one can want more just for the bag and handing it over tlie. coiinterl Jusf ne word more, Mr. Reporter. You may point out that if the people come to the shops so that we can do away with th-e vans for distributing, their bread can be made to sell at lOjd." "Would you adopt it if such was done? Yes; and I should be content with the profit. We cannot expect more profit to- day than in pre-war times, and the Is means thi": —————-—————— PRICE OF BREAD. j Miliers Governed by Bakers' Charges. At a at Taibacli on Saturday, Mr. H S. Batey, the presi- j dent of the Taibaeh and Port Talbot. Co- operative Society, alleged that a firm of millers at Swansea had refused to 6upplv them with flour unless the Society gold bread at Is. insK?d of 9d. per !lb. loaf. When the two Swansea firms were ap- proaehed by the representative of the Leader" on Tuesday they declined to make a statement but one of the man- agers observed that the millers were en- tirely governed by the price fixed by the local bakers.
