In the FT front cover story, Mike commented …”The CMA will definitely look at this. They will look at market power and the national market, but they will also scrutinise regional clusters, and the power over suppliers.“… He added that “divestments were likely for the tie-up to be approved.”
Mike also provided his legal insight on the supermarkets merger on the Today programme (BBC Radio 4).
