HC Deb 18 June 1973 vol 858 cc16-7W
Mr. Meacher

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will list all those products in which one company at present holds either one-half, one-third, or one-quarter of the market, and state in each case whether that company is United Kingdom or non-United Kingdom owned.

Sir G. Howe

I would refer the hon. Member to my hon. Friend's reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Bedford (Mr. Skeet) on Monday 5th March, listing the industries in which a single firm is believed to be responsible for between a quarter and a third of production. I regret that the additional information asked for is not available and could not be collected without undue expenditure of time and money.—[Vol. 852, c.13.]
