HC Deb 26 November 1959 vol 614 c58W
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.
