HC Deb 10 November 1953 vol 520 c26W
80. Mr. J. T. Price

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the restrictive practices which prevail in the production of domestic fuel-saving appliances, he will refer this industry to the Monopolies Commission.

Mr. H. Strauss

My right hon. Friend would only consider making such a reference if he had evidence that conditions to which the Monopolies and Restrictive Practices (Inquiry and Control) Act, 1948, applied prevailed in this trade.
