HC Deb 14 July 1980 vol 988 c365W
30. Mr. Alexander W. Lyon

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will refer the price of petrol for investigation by the Director General of Fair Trading under the Competition Act.

Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

No. I welcome the vigorous price competition seen in the petrol market which ensures the lowest possible prices for the consumer and which has in particular led to the recent welcome drop in the price of petrol at a good many garages.
