HC Deb 05 July 1971 vol 820 cc245-6W
76. Dr. Gilbert

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will refer the refusal of the Stock Exchange to permit member firms to advertise to the Monopolies Commission.

Mr. Ridley

We are considering these practices, and other restrictive practices of professional bodies, in the light of the Monopolies Commission's report on Derbyshire, South-East (Mr. Rost) on 28th June, the possibility of affording some form of special treatment to the holders of workers' shares in Rolls-Royce Ltd. is still being explored.—[Vol. 820, c. 6.]
