HC Deb 20 July 1987 vol 120 c89W
Mr. Holland

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he will refer to the Monopolies and Mergers Commission the issue of the impending wholesaler concentration of newspaper distribution.

Mr. Maude

No. The Director General of Fair Trading is aware of certain proposals to rationalise the wholesale distribution of newspapers in London and is considering whether action is appropriate under the competition legislation for which he is responsible.
