To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, when he last met with representatives of (a) the Competition and Market Authority, (b) the retail industry and (c) online marketplaces to discuss the tackling of price gouging during the covid-19 outbreak; and how regularly he has met with those representatives to discuss that matter since the beginning of the covid-19 outbreak.
