Grocery Code Adjudicator
That this House welcomes the publication of the Government's Groceries Code Adjudicator Bill; notes that the creation of an Adjudicator within the Office of Trading was the recommendation of the Competition Commission, which in 2008 found that larger supermarkets were abusing their market power, `transferring excessive risk and unexpected costs to their suppliers' and `that these practices would ultimately have a detrimental effect on consumers'; believes that large supermarkets have nothing to fear if they have nothing to hide and should embrace the Adjudicator as an opportunity to reassure their customers that they genuinely support the principles of fair trade; and calls on all parties to work to enact this Bill and introduce the Adjudicator as soon as possible.
