HC Deb 20 May 1952 vol 501 cc25-6W
38. Mr. McGovern

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that the Steel Window Frame Makers Association fix the prices to be inserted in every schedule, give different prices to each contractor and thereby decide the firm who shall get each contract, and convey the impression that competition is operating; and if he will take steps to end this monopolistic practice.

Mr. H. Strauss

Without expressing any view on the allegations contained in the Question, my right hon. Friend will bear them in mind when he next selects matters for reference to the Monopolies Commission. If the hon. Member knows of particular cases, I shall be glad to have details.
