HC Deb 19 July 1967 vol 750 c257W
55. Mr. Dewar

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is satisfied that the terms of reference for the Monopolies Commission investigation into the professions will allow an examination of the fees structure in the legal profession; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Jay

The Commission may examine any practices which are restrictive of the fees or commissions to be charged for the supply of professional services, provided that these practices are not expressly authorised by or under statute or charter.
