§ Mr. Nicholls
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what plans he has to make regulations relating to price indications given in connection with the resale of gas and electricity.
§ Mr. Eggar
We have carefully considered this matter. There appears to be insufficient evidence to suggest that there is significant abuse. We therefore do not believe that there is a strong case for making regulations at this time. Nonetheless, we will keep the situation under review and we remain ready to reconsider the position at any time in the light of new evidence.
