Debates today on Dairy Farmers and Oil / Petrol Prices

Two debates today at the same time in the House. Have long been campaigning to get the OFT to investigate the lack of competition in the UK petrol and diesel market. In particular we are concerned that oil companies are not necessarily passing on commodity price reductions to consumers. On the issue of milk prices I am trying also to get in to the debate on dairy farmers plight. As always we are at the mercy of the speaker who determines who is called.
