HC Deb 27 March 1952 vol 498 c78W
113. Sir W. Smithers

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will now take steps to amend the Monopolies and Restrictive Practices (Inquiry and Control) Act, 1948, to empower the Monopolies Commission to inquire into the nationalised industries.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

I am considering this matter in preparing legislation to strengthen the Commission and widen the scope of their activities.
