NMA Responds To Government Changes To Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill

In response to the press release from the government today concerning changes to the Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill, Owen Meredith, NMA chief executive, has said:

“We welcome the decision from the government today to maintain the judicial review standard for appeals on regulatory decisions. This will ensure the CMA has the tools to act and is not bogged down in complex, lengthy, and costly legal wrangling, which would render the new regime ineffective.

“We are carefully analysing the detail of all the Government’s amendments to the Bill to ensure they provide legal certainty and do not in any way undermine or weaken the new regime.”
