HC Deb 23 January 1987 vol 108 c774W
Mr. Gould

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry when he now expects to publish the conclusions of his review of competition policy.

Mr. Howard

I expect the work of the review of law and policy on mergers and restrictive trade practices to continue until the end of this year. Meanwhile, if changes of policy within the existing law are identified as desirable, the Government will not hesitate to implement them.
