Welcome CMA decision on Sainsbury’s and Asda merger validates concerns

Rebecca Long Bailey, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on the Competition and Markets Authority’s decision to block the merger of Sainsbury’s and Asda, said:

“The CMA’s decision is welcome and validates the concerns of many trade unions and industry groups that the merger risked stifling choice and quality in the groceries sector, as well as driving down terms for workers and supply chain businesses.”
