§ 25. Mr. Neubert
asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether he will list those nationalised industries that have been investigated by the Monopolies and Mergers Commission since the passage of the Competition Act; and whether he plans to make further references.
§ Mrs. Sally Oppenheim
My right hon. Friend has so far received the commission's reports on British Rail's London and South-East commuter services, the Central Electricity Generating Board and Severn-Trent water authority. Four public sector bus undertakings are currently being investigated. My right hon. Friend intends to announce a programme of references to cover the next 12 months very shortly.
