The Government’s Modernising Consumer Markets green paper sought views on how well equipped the UK competition regime is to manage emerging challenges, including in digital markets. We are continuing to develop policy options across the range of measures proposed in the green paper and will respond in due course.

The Government has also commissioned the independent Digital Competition Expert Panel to undertake a review into the state of competition in the digital economy and to make recommendations on any changes that may be needed. The independent Panel’s terms of reference were published in September, when the Panel started its work. The Panel ran an open call for evidence between 12 October and 7 December. The Panel expects to publish a final report of its findings in due course. The findings of the panel’s work will help inform our policy proposals.
