HC Deb 28 July 1967 vol 751 c317W
Mr. Ford

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the decision by Courtaulds to withdraw supplies of Courtelle tow from certain independent topmakers commencing 14th July; whether, in view of the fact that this may give Courtaulds a monopoly in this topmaking, he will refer the matter to the Monopolies Commission; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Jay

I am aware of Courtaulds's action; and I will bear this matter in mind when new references to the Monopolies Commission are being considered.
