MP urges curbs on supermarkets’ power
SUPERMARKETS power must be curbed and addressed by the Competition Bill, demands Lib-Dem MP Colin Breed.
Mr Breed said the Competition Bill, which received its second reading in the House of Commons this week, should be used to bring UK supermarkets more into line with their Continental counterparts. Supermarkets do not have the same buying power in other European countries.
