The News Retailers Association set its sights high at its inaugural meeting when it demanded a choice of wholesalers, the scrapping of carriage charges and 25% terms on national papers. The NRA ­ a joint venture between the National Federation of Retail Newsagents and Multiple Newsagents Association ­ said these three key objectives would form the basis of its negotiations with the rest of the industry. The two founder organisations expect other groups to join them in the NRA. Roger Clarke, chief executive of the NRA and the NFRN, signalled retailers would not hesitate to use the new Competition Act if there is no movement soon from wholesalers and publishers. {{NEWS }}
