star this property answer text <p>The pre-2003 newspaper merger regime, set out in the Fair Trading Act 1973 (FTA 1973), including the criminal offence in section 62 of the FTA 1973 for breaches of conditions, was repealed in 2003. The regime was replaced by the regime set out in the Enterprise Act 2002 which allows the Secretary of State to intervene in certain newspaper and media merger cases that raise public interest concerns.</p><p> </p><p>The Communications Act 2003 gives the Secretary of State powers to vary conditions by accepting new undertakings in place of the previous conditions. Where new undertakings are accepted, they are subject to the monitoring and enforcement provisions under the 2002 Enterprise Act in place of penalties under the FTA 1973. This enables the Secretary of State to make enforcement orders if they consider an undertaking has not been fulfilled, or will not be fulfilled.</p><p> </p><p>If an enforcement order is not complied with the Secretary of State or the Competition and Markets Authority can bring proceedings for an injunction. If a party did not comply with an injunction this would amount to contempt of court, which can be punished by a fine or imprisonment.</p><p> </p>

However, writing to the party does not necessarily indicate that any transaction raises any public interest concerns.</p><p>These decisions are always made in a quasi judicial capacity by the Secretary of State.<strong><br></strong></p> more like this
