The report by John Penrose MP examined how the UK can enhance its competition regime and how competition policy can support the economic recovery from Covid-19 and the Government’s ‘levelling up’ agenda. This lecture will explore the key themes of the report including tackling consumer rip-offs and bad business practices; ensuring the competition regime is strong, swift, flexible and proportionate; ensuring new digital markets work effectively and enable disruptors to challenge incumbents; and also examine how to increase competition in regulated sectors to reduce the role of the regulator and reform the appeals process for regulatory settlements.
