Financial Services and Markets Bill (27 Mar 2000)

Lord McIntosh of Haringey: ...what the competition authorities--that is, the Director-General of Fair Trading and the Competition Commission--should be examining. At present, Clause 150 uses language which mirrors that in the Competition Act, which itself mirrors that in Article 81 of the European Treaty. When we looked at that clause, we considered that it was not appropriate. That legislation is concerned with the...

Financial Services and Markets Bill (27 Mar 2000)

Lord McIntosh of Haringey: ...information, does not contain any similar provision. I agree that such a limitation would be appropriate. This would bring the clause into line with the analogous provision in Clause 26 of the Competition Act 1998. I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Saatchi, for bringing forward this amendment. If I may, I shall take it away and produce our own amendment on Report which will meet the...

Orders of the Day — Utilities Bill: Financial Penalties (19 Apr 2000)

Robert Syms: ..., there is a problem in that there could be multiple fines. As my hon. Friend the Member for Bognor Regis and Littlehampton pointed out, a limit of 10 per cent. applies to fines made under the Competition Act 1998, but there is no limit to the fines made under the Bill. It is important to set limits, so that people know how to react. It is perfectly possible for us in the Chamber to frame...

Orders of the Day — Utilities Bill: Utilities (19 Apr 2000)

Angela Browning: ...programmes. Also on the minus side are the limitless fines that the Bill will enable the regulatory authority to impose on the utilities, as we discussed again this evening. Not even the Competition Act 1998, with its draconian fines of up to 10 per cent. of turnover, can match the Utilities Bill in its scope for high fines. The Secretary of State should remember that corporate fines...

Freedom of Information Bill (20 Apr 2000)

Lord Young of Dartington: ...a government policy initiative has been or is in the process of being implemented; for example, the Food Standards Agency, the Financial Services and Markets Bill, the Utilities Bill and the Competition Act. There is also the Transport Bill, with the serious implications for rail safety and air traffic control. In each of those cases the Consumers' Association has serious reservations...

Essential Local Services ( 3 May 2000)

Lord Bradshaw: ...is very clear that simple information, network ticketing and co-operation between operators are needed by both the existing users and those whom companies seek to attract. However, the shadow of the Competition Act hangs over the industry. I believe that the Office of Fair Trading is making progress on the issue of a block exemption for the industry as regards joint and through tickets....

Utilities Bill ( 4 May 2000)

Lord McIntosh of Haringey: ...a Competition Bill into this Government's first parliamentary Session, following years during which the Opposition talked about the reform of competition but did nothing about it. The powers in the Competition Act came into force on 1st March this year. From that date, the energy regulator and the other regulators took on strong new powers to tackle anti-competitive behaviour in their...

Financial Services and Markets Bill ( 9 May 2000)

Lord McIntosh of Haringey: ...not require their members to engage in practices which are unnecessarily anti-competitive. It is not concerned with what those members get up to of their own accord. That is a matter covered by the Competition Act 1998. Amendment No. 170BS brings the description of what the regime is aimed at--things which have a significantly adverse effect on competition--into line with the wording...

Statements by the Treasury ( 9 May 2000)

Lord McIntosh of Haringey: ...removed a similar bar in the regime in Part X in response to Don Cruickshank's interim report on banking services in the United Kingdom. Amendments Nos. 170Q and 170T narrow the exclusion from the Competition Act 1998 in the same way as we have in Part X. Again this was in response to the Cruickshank recommendations. I beg to move.

References in other enactments ( 9 May 2000)

Lord McIntosh of Haringey: ...it is necessary for the performance of one of a number of specific public purposes. Those purposes are set out in subsection (2) of the new clause and the new schedule. They are in line with the Competition Act 1998. I beg to move.

Clause 72: New clause ( 5 Jun 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...

Transport Bill ( 5 Jun 2000)

Lord Morris of Manchester: ...the Bill's competition test applicable to statutory quality partnerships. Operators have the genuine anxiety that if they enter into such arrangements they will be exposed to the full rigours of the Competition Act 1998, with no protection from the Bill's competition provisions. To meet the legitimate concerns of all parties, my suggestion--to which I hope my noble friend will accede--is...

Postal Services Bill ( 8 Jun 2000)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: ...to pay a penalty. I believe that an unlimited penalty is not called for and is grossly excessive. The amendment that we propose follows, word for word, an identical provision in the Government's own Competition Act 1998. I believe that in the interests of consistency the Government should follow their own recent precedent and not allow such an unfettered discretion for what may turn out to...

Utilities Bill (13 Jun 2000)

Baroness Wilcox: ...-- :TITLE3:APPEAL TO AUTHORITY BY NON-LICENCE HOLDERS (" .--(1) A person who is not a licence holder may appeal to the Authority to withdraw or vary a decision (other than that in section 47 of the Competition Act 1998). (2) In this section "decision" means-- (a) the introduction of a new licence condition; (b) the modification of an existing licence condition; (c) any other decision...
