Monopolies Commission Report

In January 1967 the Monopolies Commission was asked to report ‘on the general effect on the public interest of certain restrictive practices so far as they prevail in relation to the supply of professional services’. In its reference to the Commission the Government specified seven practices, including restriction on entry to a profession by the passing of prescribed examinations; the remaining practices were those which, by long-standing convention, specify fees, the terms and conditions upon which services are to be supplied, restriction upon advertising and other matters.
