HC Deb 19 December 2000 vol 360 c137W
Caroline Flint

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations his Department has received about anti-competitive pricing practices in the petrol supply sector. [143151]

Dr. Howells

My Department has received a number of representations from petrol retailers.

The Director General of Fair Trading is responsible for monitoring markets. He completed a review of differential pricing within this market in November. He concluded that differential pricing has not resulted from anti-competitive behaviour by the major oil companies.
