UK: House of Lords consider amendments to Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill

On May 14, 2024, the Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill returned to the House of Lords for consideration of the House of Commons' proposed amendments.

What were the proposed amendments?

In particular, the House of Commons had proposed changes to the bill including:

  • giving challenger firms greater access to information about cases being considered by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA); and
  • requiring the CMA to publish full statements, rather than summaries, of its notices of findings and enforcement orders.

The House of Lords agreed to amend the bill to impose restrictions on secondary ticketing facilities but voted against a change on appealing penalties imposed by the CMA.

Next steps

The bill will now return to the House of Commons with an amendment for their consideration.
