Q13 Alison Halford:

What action has the Minister taken to ensure all supermarkets in Wales deal fairly with farmers and give them a fair price for their goods? (OAQ15921)

Carwyn Jones:

This issue was the subject of an eight-month investigation by the Office of Fair Trading and was then referred to the Competition Commission for a full monopolies inquiry. The Department of Trade and Industry recommended that a binding code of conduct be developed for the industry. The code will enter into force on 17 March 2002.
