HC Deb 11 June 1979 vol 968 c54W
Mr. John Evans

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will refer the operation of the United Kingdom sugar, syrup and starch industry to either the Office of Fair Trading the Monopolies Commission.

No. The Price Commission investigated Tate and Lyle's sugar and syrup products in a report published on 15 February 1978—HC 224. I see no need for a further investigation.
