HC Deb 08 May 1956 vol 552 c94W
Mr. J. Harrison

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will take steps to prevent British companies making agreements with Canadian companies to adjust price ranges and markets, particularly such arrangements that keep British products out of the Canadian markets.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

Agreements of the kind mentioned could, in certain circumstances, be examined by the Monopolies Commission or could be subject to registration and examination by the Restrictive Practices Court under Part I of the Restrictive Trade Practices Bill.
