Mr. Ted Fletcher
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of his policy that the solus system in the petrol trade, as now operated, is in some respects contrary to the public interest, and the fact that the Monopolies Commission has recommended certain 214W safeguards against those features that it considers to be harmful, he will make a statement on the action he intends to take.
§ Mr. Darling
My right hon. Friend made a statement on this matter in answer to a Question from the hon. Member for Fife, West (Mr. William Hamilton) on 10th February.
