June 30 1990. The Government is keeping a low profile on the Aldi-OFT affair, Food Minister David McLean told The Grocer this week. "We are not being drawn into that easily," he said. "The matter is being dealt with by the OFT and we are leaving them to get on with the job. We will be very interested in the outcome of that inquiry, but I see no reason at all for us to intervene." Aldi had brought to the attention of the OFT reports that competitors were influencing manuafacturers not to supply it. Meanwhile, Labour consumer affairs spokesman Nigel Griffiths has failed to get the matter raised in the House. {{COUNTERPOINT }}
