Competition Commission risks failing statutory duty in supermarket inquiry, says nef

The Competition Commission risks failing to examine the grocery market in line with its statutory duties, says nef, in its' response to the Commission’s Emerging Thinking. Obliged by law to defend the interests of both present and future consumers from the adverse effects of market failure, nef fears that the Commission’s approach is based on inadequate evidence and a failure to protect the interests of all consumer groups for access to a full range of shopping experiences, including independent local stores and street markets. The current loss of both undermines choice and innovation, which are measures of consumer detriment as defined by the Enterprise Act 2002.
