The Competition Commission yesterday paved the way for a £140m tie-up between the wholesalers Bookers and Makro.

It ruled that the deal would not lead to higher prices and poorer service as "our evidence points to the fact that customers can and do switch between different types of wholesalers". A final report will be published before 24 April.
