asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of His Majesty's Government's statement in another place on 28th March, 1950, to the effect that the Commission set up under the Monopolies and Restrictive Practices (Inquiry and Control) Act, 1948, as at present constituted, does not work quickly enough, what steps have been taken or are contemplated by his Department to make adequate and effective the machinery for investigating the large number of industries brought to the attention of the Commission by the general public, consumer associations and consumer industries.

I have been considering this matter in consultation with the Monopolies Commission and hope to be able to make a statement shortly.
