HC Deb 17 June 1966 vol 729 c347W
Mr. Cronin

asked the President of the Board of Trade what has been the result of his discussions with the Ross Group Limited on the implementation of the Monopolies Commission's report on the proposed merger between that company and Associated Fisheries Limited.

Mr. Jay

I am glad to say that the Ross Group Limited has given me its assurance that the company will neither make a further bid for Associated Fisheries Limited nor take any other action to place the company in a position of controlling the policy of Associated Fisheries.

In these circumstances no further action on the Monopolies Commission's report is necessary.

Forward to
