asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will make a statement on competition policy.

Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

On 1 July my right hon. Friend released a statement covering mergers policy, the facilitation of demergers, and other aspects of industrial structure. This statement has been published in full in the journalBritish Business on 4 July. My right hon. Friend has no plans for a further statement on competition policy at present.
