Mr. H. Wilson
I have no evidence that the conditions to which the Monopolies and Restrictive Practices (Inquiry and Control) Act applies prevail as respects the supply of furniture.
I should be glad to look at any evidence my hon. Friend produces though, of course, I cannot anticipate my future choice of references to the Commission.
§ Mr. Nally
While it may be right that this matter has not yet reached the stage where it can, or ought, to be referred to the Monopolies Commission, would my right hon. Friend give an undertaking that he will keep a most careful eye upon the buying out activities which Great Universal Stores have been undertaking in the past few years?
I am keeping a very careful eye on the whole question of furniture supplies, though my powers to deal with the kind of thing referred to by my hon. Friend are very limited.
