HC Deb 23 March 1970 vol 798 c259W
Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Minister of Technology if he will request the Industrial Reorganisation Corporation to refrain from taking any steps to frustrate the proposed merger of Dunlop Limited and Pirelli, notwithstanding the objections which the corporation advanced against trans-national mergers in the case of Skefco's bid for Ransome and Marles Limited.

Mr. Harold Lever

Since the Government announced on 13th March that they welcomed this proposal and did not intend to refer it to the Monopolies Commission the question does not arise.
