§ Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection what representations he has received about variations in retail petrol prices in different parts of the country; and 9W whether he has referred them to the Monopolies and Mergers Commission currently studying prices and supply of petrol.
§ Mr. Maclennan
I have received a number of representations. Regional variations are not included in the terms of the current reference to the Monopolies and Mergers Commission. However, I am arranging for these complaints to be brought to the Commission's attention.
