Reform of the UK Institutions Enforcing Competition Policy: Unfinished and Inevitable

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The UK competition regime was fundamentally changed at the turn of the
Millennium. Competition replaced a public interest test, some aspects of anticompetitive behaviour were quasi-criminalised, and the institutions became
determinative, i.e. politicians no longer made the final decision. There was some
reform of the institutions charged with enforcing this new approach, but not enough.
One consequence has been too few cases to establish useful precedents. This
article suggests a way forward.
