HC Deb 06 February 1964 vol 688 cc1316-7
13. Mr. Jay

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development what further action Her Majesty's Government propose to take following their consideration of the Report of the Monopolies Commission on the Supply of Electrical Equipment for Mechanically Propelled Land Vehicles.

Mr. Heath

I have nothing to add to the Answer given to the right hon. Member on 16th January.

Mr. Jay

As the right hon. Gentleman has said that he is still considering the most important point, can he at least tell us when the consideration will end and we shall have some action on this one?

Mr. Heath

Very shortly.

Mr. Stonehouse

In view of the fact that the Monopolies Commission condemned individual R.P.M. in this industry, does the Minister propose to abolish that forthwith or refer it to another tribunal?

Mr. Heath

I have not the power to abolish it forthwith.
