HC Deb 06 February 1962 vol 653 c34W
49. Mr. Jay

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will refer the manufacture and distribution of boots and shoes to the Monopolies Commission.

Mr. N. Macpherson

No. On the information before him it does not appear to my right hon. Friend that the conditions to which the Monopolies and Restrictive Practices (Inquiry and Control) Act, 1948, applies prevail in respect of either the manufacture or the distribution of boots and shoes.
