§ Mr. McCrindle
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will conduct a review of British restrictive practices law; arid if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Fletcher
The restrictive trade practices legislation was extensively reviewed in the Green Paper "A Review of Restrictive Trade Practices Policy" (Cmnd. 7512) which concluded that the legislation had been generally effective. I continue to keep the legislation under review, and I am willing to consider proposals to amend it.
