HC Deb 30 April 1969 vol 782 c225W
66. Mr. Lipton

asked the President of the Board of Trade when he will publish the report of the Monopolies Commission on tied public houses.

Mr. Dell

The report was published on Monday. As my right hon. Friend stated then, he will be making a statement shortly.—[Vol. 782, col. 183–4.]

67. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will investigate the premature disclosure of the Report from the Monopolies Commission on the Brewery Interest on the radio and in the Press before the official publication of the Report.

Mr. Crosland

All the advance reports that I saw or heard were largely mistaken as to the Commission's recommendations. There is therefore no evidence of a premature disclosure and hence nothing to investigate.
