HC Deb 19 July 1991 vol 195 c317W
Mr. Hoyle

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he has received any approach from Hanson plc seeking guidance on whether any takeover bid would be referred to the Monopolies and Mergers Commission.

Mr. Lilley

I have received no such approach. A bid involving a combined turnover in excess of five billion ecu, unless predominantly within one member state or outside the Community, would fall within the European Commission's jurisdiction.
