HC Deb 19 July 1956 vol 556 cc111-2W
93. Mr. Chetwynd

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the existence of a price ring fixing the price of cricket balls; and if he will refer this matter to the Monopolies Commission.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

Such a price ring would come within the scope of the Restrictive Trade Practices Bill and would not therefore be suitable for reference to the Monopolies Commission.
