§ 70. Mr. R. Edwards
asked the President of the Board Trade whether he has considered the evidence, sent to him by the hon. Member for Bilston, that a group of firms controlling 80 per cent. of the business of the cable industry are conducting a campaign aimed at achieving monopoly control; and whether he will refer this industry to the Monopolies Commission for inquiry.
§ Mr. Maudling
I have considered the information sent to me by the hon. Member, and I have nothing to add to the reply which my hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member for Cannock (Miss Lee) on 19th November.
