holding answer 21 February 2005

In response to a request from certain parties in the newspaper and magazine supply chain, the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has been undertaking an informal consideration of the arrangements for distribution of newspapers and magazines. This is a matter for the OFT. OFT has, however, sought to keep DTI officials informed about the process. I understand the OFT will announce its findings shortly.
