|Her Majesty the Queen on her way to the Palace of Westminster to open Parliament May 2012|
Beneath the bluster of headline news from this year's Queen’s speech on such issues as House of Lords reform, ring fencing ' casino banks', easier hiring and firing for employers, overhauling public sector pensions, and monitoring of emails and electronic communications etc. our coalition Government have introduced after consultation and new authority - the Competition and Markets Authority CMA.

"The new Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) will be responsible for promoting effective competition in markets across the UK economy for the benefit of consumers and allow more effective co-ordination with Trading Standards.
Above all the proposals will help streamline the consumer landscape and ensure a powerful consumer voice to business, government and regulators"
Selling has to be interested in anything from Government where the consumer landscape will be streamlined ( I assume they mean the market) and the empowerment of the voice of the consumer whether to , government or regulators.
