HC Deb 05 April 1971 vol 815 c21W
Mr. Stainton

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether, in view of concern among farmers at the development of a national fertiliser monopoly, he will consider referring this industry to the Monopolies Commission.

Mr. Ridley

The Commission reported on this industry in 1960. I see no need at present for a further reference in the light of developments in the market since then.
