Motion text

That this House recognises the importance of diversity and consumer choice in grocery shopping now and in the future, especially the strong tradition of independently run local grocers and convenience stores; recognises that ongoing acquisitions and consolidation in the grocery market led by the major supermarket groups threatens that choice, diversity and tradition; further recognises the work undertaken by the various trade associations on behalf of small retailers to highlight these implications; and calls on the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry to undertake a full review of the implications of consolidation and introduce measures that would safeguard choice in local shopping for future generations.
