Orders of the Day — Financial Services and Markets Bill: Reports by Director General of Fair Trading (27 Jan 2000)

Mr Nigel Beard: Such arguments have been rehearsed before. On each occasion, the case made against including competitiveness as an objective of the Bill is that under the Competition Act 1998 there exists the Competition Commission.

Link Bank Network (29 Feb 2000)

Lord Haskel: ...one set of users of cash machines--their own customers--and another set of users--other banks' customers. With impeccable timing, upon which my noble friend Lord Graham should be congratulated, The Competition Act comes into force tomorrow. The Competition Commission should be interested in exploring whether the agreement is contrary to Article 84 and should be registered. I suspect that...

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?

Scottish Parliament: Water Charges ( 8 Mar 2000)

Richard Lochhead: ...has been up and running for 10 months—why is the minister closing the stable door after the horse has bolted? Another threat that the minister has failed to address adequately is that posed by the Competition Act 1998. A consultation paper will be published in April, but that act has been in force since the beginning of this month and we have known about it for years. Is the minister...

Small Business ( 8 Mar 2000)

Dr George Turner: ...should be congratulated on their general economic management. If economic management is wrong, the problems of regulation will be tiny in comparison.

Lord McNally: ...of the British Retail Consortium. I saw at first hand the value of brands and the need to protect the consumer from the fake and the shoddy.

Financial Services and Markets Bill (21 Mar 2000)

Lord Borrie: ...which amplifies what was in the Bill in the first place, I am still somewhat puzzled with regard to penalties. Unlike other legislation dealing with criminal or quasi-criminal penalties, such as the Competition Act 1998, why is no maximum set out in the legislation?
