Written answers (Question to Jobs)

The draft heads of the Consumer and Competition Bill which provides, inter alia, for the merger of the National Consumer Agency and the Competition Authority were approved by Government in July 2011. The heads are currently with the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel for drafting and I expect to publish the Bill later this year.
