§ 67. Mr. LAMBERT
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will take steps, in the interest of both producer and consumer, to terminate the monopoly now held by Covent Garden Market, which prevents any other markets for fruit and vegetables being established in or near London?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Sir Robert Sanders)
There is no monopoly enjoyed by Covent Garden Market which can prevent the establishment of other markets for fruit and vegetables in or near London.
§ Mr. LAMBERT
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that a committee the other day described Covent Garden as a confused and unauthorised anachron- 928 ism, and will he take steps to terminate that state of affairs?
