Subject to the outcome of the Brexit negotiations, the CMA plans to give greater priority to potential market studies and investigations as it considers future work. The themes which it proposes should carry particular strategic importance include:
- protecting vulnerable customers;
- improving trust in markets;
- promoting better competition in online markets; and
- supporting economic growth and productivity.
The consultation closes on 13 January 2019.
