Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Question (27 Ion 2021)

Paul Scully: The Competition Act 1998 prohibits abuse of a dominant position – abusive behaviour can relate to pricing strategies, for example excessive pricing or setting artificially low prices to stifle competition. The Competition and Markets Authority is responsible for investigating individual and market-wide competition issues in the UK. The Government has ensured that the CMA has significant...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Competition Commission (11 Rha 2013)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: The Department has not issued any such guidance and does not plan to do so. The Competition Commission (CC) is an expert, independent organisation whose powers are set out in the Competition Act 1998 and the Enterprise Act 2002. The range of powers includes the power under Part 3 of the Enterprise Act 2002 to decide whether a merger gives rise to a substantial lessening of competition within...

Written Answers — Trade and Industry: Supermarkets (12 Gor 2004)

Gerry Sutcliffe: ...Act 2002 the Secretary of State appoints the OFT Board and can remove Board members "on the grounds of incapacity or misbehaviour". There are appeal procedures for decisions made by the OFT. The Competition Act 1998 and Enterprise Act 2002 define the scope for appeals. These appeals are made to, and determined by, the Competition Appeal Tribunal. These provisions apply equally to decisions...

Health ( 9 Meh 2014)

Tom Blenkinsop: Will the Minister tell the House at what point the provisions of the Competition Act 1998 were introduced into the Bill that became the Health and Social Care Act 2012? I think it was this Government who did that. In the Public Bill Committee, I commented on the fact that they were exposing the NHS and undermining the category B status of the European competition regulations by putting the...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Enterprise Bill: Clause 11 - Super-complaints to the OFT (16 Ebr 2002)

Miss Melanie Johnson: The amendments would narrow the definition of a super complaint by placing the emphasis on conduct connected to breaches of chapter 1 of the Competition Act or article 81 of the EU treaty rather than broader problems in the market that may harm the interests of consumers. Our intention is to ensure that consumers receive better protection by enabling consumer bodies to complain about any...

Written Answers — Health: General Practitioners: Monitor (14 Chw 2011)

Simon Burns: The Health and Social Care Bill would provide concurrent powers for Monitor, alongside the Office of Fair Trading (OFT), to apply the Competition Act 1998 within the health care sector. Monitor would be obliged to consider any complaint from an interested party alleging an infringement under the Act and would have concurrent powers under the Act to investigate and take enforcement action....

Clause 72: New clause ( 5 Meh 2000)

Miss Melanie Johnson: ...of what is bad for competition was revised so as to take the wording away from that used in article 81 of the European treaty. Similar language is, of course, used in chapter I of part I of the Competition Act 1998. However, the Competition Act and the treaty are concerned with the behaviour of commercial undertakings. Given that the provisions of part X are concerned with the application...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Enterprise Bill: Clause 175 - The Competition Service ( 7 Mai 2002)

Miss Melanie Johnson: ...the CAT's precursor—is part of the Competition Commission. That raises no conflict of interest at present, because the CCAT hears appeals only against the decisions of the OFT in cases under the Competition Act 1998. We wanted the CAT to review the work of the reporting side of the Competition Commission in mergers and market cases, so we decided to separate the membership of the...

Clause 32: Competition and Anti-Competitive Practices ( 7 Mai 1993)

Malcolm Moss: ...At present non-statutory professional associations of osteopaths are subject to the monopoly provisions of the Fair Trading Act 1973 and the provisions concerning anti-competitive practices in the Competition Act 1980. The Secretary of State for Trade and Industry has the authority to make orders by statutory instrument to require the associations to make any changes to their rules or...

Written Answers — Trade and Industry: Competition Act (16 Med 2003)

Gerry Sutcliffe: My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry provided for an exemption to Chapter I of the Competition Act 1998 for public transport ticketing schemes, under the Competition Act (Public Transport Ticketing Schemes Block Exemption) Order 2001, SI 2001/319, which came into force on 1 March 2001. The Order was made on the recommendation of the Director General of Fair...

Written Answers — Trade and Industry: Home Credit Providers ( 8 Tach 2005)

Gerry Sutcliffe: ...is charged with certain responsibilities set out in statute. Under the Consumer Credit Act many types of business—including home credit companies—have to obtain a licence from the OFT. Under the Competition Act and Enterprise Act the OFT is responsible for competition law. These functions are consistent as the OFT seeks to make markets work well and the CCA and competition powers both...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill: Clauses 116 - Removal of requirement for agreements etc to be implemented in the UK (27 Meh 2023)

Paul Scully: ...focuses on the UK’s existing competition regime. First, I will explain that while the CMA is the principal regulator responsible for the public enforcement of the prohibitions in part 1 of the Competition Act 1998, its functions are also exercisable concurrently by sector regulators, such as Ofgem and Ofcom, among others. The measures in clauses 116 to 120 and clause 135, and when we...

Transport Bill (10 Gor 2000)

Lord Whitty: ...not only a role for the Office of Fair Trading, but also a public interest defence. We are now in a different area--that of quality contracts. It is clear that the amendment seeks to apply the Competition Act to quality contract schemes, so we would have two competition regimes for quality contracts running in parallel. There is a potential difficulty with competition policy. But it is...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Health and Social Care(Re-Committed) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (28 Meh 2011)

Dr Bennett: Again, I will pass this on in a moment because the technicalities will get very complex. Today, if the private sector wanted to go to the OFT and make a complaint under the Competition Act, which embodies European competition law, it could, and the OFT is indeed dealing with a complaint today. What is proposed is that in addition to the OFT having that power—its normal...

Written Answers — Business, Innovation and Skills: Energy: Prices (29 Maw 2010)

Kevin Brennan: The Competition Act 1998 and the Enterprise Act 2002 contain a range of powers to protect consumers from unfair competition in the UK economy including the markets for petrol retailing, home heating oil and oil used by Industry. As the UK's independent competition authority, the Office of Fair Trading has been given significant powers to investigate and enforce competition law. These powers...

Written Answers — Trade and Industry: Newspaper/Magazine Distribution ( 4 Gor 2001)

Miss Melanie Johnson: ...of Fair Trading to investigate allegations of anti-competitive behaviour and if appropriate make a reference to the Competition Commission under the Fair Trading Act 1973 or take action under the Competition Act 1998.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Health and Social Care Bill (10 Chw 2011)

David Bennett: Yes. At the moment, for example, it is not entirely clear to what degree foundation trusts are subject either to the Competition Act or the Enterprise Act. One thing the Bill will do is make it clear that they are. The consequences of doing that—first, in terms of the Competition Act and giving Monitor concurrent powers with the OFT—mean that if there are complaints about...

Enterprise Bill (18 Gor 2002)

Lord Sainsbury of Turville: In this sense, there are two distinct differences between the Competition Act 1998 and the Enterprise Bill. One concerns prohibition; the second relates to the number of bodies involved. Under the Competition Act 1998, there is a very clear situation where a company is in breach of either prohibition or dominance of restrictive agreements, thereby breaking the law. The second point is that,...

Written Answers — Health: Care Homes (15 Hyd 2002)

Jacqui Smith: ...General of Fair Trading, found that purchasing by a public body, in certain circumstances, is an economic activity carried out by an undertaking and therefore may be subject to the provisions of the Competition Act 1998. The judgement reflected a particular set of circumstances and is not of general application. In broad terms, the Competition Act is concerned with anti-competitive...

Merger Reform ( 6 Maw 2000)

Lord Peston: My Lords, will my noble friend ask his right honourable friend to reflect on a fundamental matter: this Government introduced the Competition Act 1998 which, for the first time, gives us a stringent piece of pro-competition legislation? Does it follow logically from that extraordinarily powerful Act that the Secretary of State for Trade--I believe he is still so called--should not intervene...
