Categorised under the topic of Service industries.

That this House expresses its concern at the effect of the policy of the online bookseller Amazon on small publishers; notes in particular its policy that small publishers enter an agreement requiring them to give a60 per cent. discount to Amazon and to agree not toallow any other retailerto sell their books at a lower price than Amazon; and believes that Amazon shouldnot use its market power as the largest online book outlet to deprive small publishers of a reasonable return.

This motion has been signed by a total of 12 MPs.
