I do not think I would agree with that point of view. Both parties have always adopted the empirical approach, which is different from the American type of monopoly legislation. I have recently expanded and strengthened the Commission and I think we should wait and see how it works.
While not necessarily accepting that the American legislation is desirable, may I ask the Minister whether he does not agree that our existing legislation is really quite inadequate to deal with the problem of monopolies and restrictive practices? Can he not promise to consider improved measures?
