§ Mr. Turner
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has yet received the report of the Monopolies and Restrictive Practices Commission on the supply and export of matches.
§ Mr. P. Thorneycroft
Yes. I received this report on 3rd October; it deals also with the supply of match-making machinery, which was the subject of a separate reference to the Commission. In accordance with the provisions of Section 9 of the Monopolies and Restrictive Practices (Inquiry and Control) Act, 1948, it will be laid before Parliament as soon as it is printed.
