Comp. Commission:  The Competition Commission (CC) has published an issues statement as part of its investigation into the market for the supply of payment protection insurance (PPI) in the UK, which identifies the specific questions & areas the CC believes are relevant in deciding whether any feature of the market(s) for PPI products restricts, distorts or prevents competition.

It will be used as the basis to guide collection of evidence including the first round of hearings with interested parties during the period May to July 2007.  The CC would like to hear views on the issues statement from all interested parties, in writing, by Friday 11 May 2007.
