Milk Co-operatives

Volume 448: debated on Wednesday 5 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will reform current arrangements for the development of vertical cooperatives in the milk industry. (75985)

Mergers, acquisitions and other competition matters are the responsibility of the competition authorities. These bodies are independent and the Government have no role in the administration of competition law, except in very restricted circumstances.
