MP opposes supermarket merger

MP John Hayes has spoken in Parliament about the proposed supermarket merger of Asda and Sainsbury's.

This new retail giant would be the largest in the food industry and the member for South Holland and the Deepings believes this would lead to further domination of local farmers, growers and food firms, while robbing consumers of choice.

Mr Hayes told the House of Commons: "Such a merger would disadvantage their suppliers—the farmers, growers and food firms in my constituency and elsewhere—and consumers, as choice would be reduced."
