§ Mr. Ieuan Wyn Jones
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what representations she has received regarding the retail price of compact discs. 
§ Mr. Nigel Griffiths
My Department has received 7 complaints about the retail price of compact discs since 1 May 1997.716W
These have been forwarded to the Director General of Fair Trading who is responsible for considering allegations of abuse of monopoly position, anti-competitive behaviour and restrictive trade practices. The Director General can act if he considers that a particular price is the result of anti-competitive practices.
