HC Deb 13 March 1968 vol 760 c294W
68. Mr. Pavitt

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has now completed his consideration of the matter of mercury batteries; and if he will now refer this to the Monopolies Commission, in view of the adverse effects of this matter on users of post aural hearing aids.

Mr. Darling

I will bear my hon. Friend's suggestion in mind when considering future references to the Commission, but the immediate price increase is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Minister of Technology.
