HC Deb 16 February 1982 vol 18 c75W
50. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if, in view of the fact that oil prices are falling, internationally, he will, pursuant to the policy of Her Majesty's Government to reduce inflation, take whatever steps may be open to him to ensure that such reductions are passed on to end users.

Mr. Gray

The Competition Act 1980 already provides the framework to encourage a vigorously competitive market in oil products.
