Dirk Auer, Director of Competition Policy at the International Center for Law and Economics and co-author of Digital Overload, has written for Conservative Home warning that the government’s new digital competition proposals risk undermining the UK’s tech sector.

The article read:

“The DMCC would give the CMA extremely broad powers without the usual substantive guardrails or procedural checks and balances, granting the agency nearly unfettered discretion to reshape digital markets according to its idiosyncratic preferences.

“This cumbersome regulation will undermine investment in the UK digital sector, and associated innovation. The UK’s position as a ‘science and technology superpower’ will thus be undermined.”
