Newsagents keep up monopoly protest

The National Federation of Retail Newsagents is to continue with its campaign to have the newspaper wholesaling industry referred to the Office of Fair Trading. At a meeting with the wholesalers today to be chaired by Edward Leigh, the former trade minister, the newsagents' trade body will argue that proposals by WH Smith and John Menzies to redistribute their wholesaling interests will increase their monopoly control of the business.
