§ Ms Atherton
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what evidence she has collated on the purchase of compact discs at discount prices on the internet and subsequent surcharges imposed by the British Phonographic Industry.
§ Ms Hewitt
I do not have information on the specific facts behind the dispute between BPI and CD WOW! However, I understand that CD WOW! have agreed not to import products from outside the European Economic Area to satisfy customers in the UK. I do not believe there is an issue of surcharges involved.
