CRIMINAL PENALTIES FOR CONTRAVENTIONS OF PART IV OF THE TRADE PRACTICES ACT

JULIE CLARKE

Abstract


[In 2003 the Dawson Committee, commissioned by the Government, recom- mended that criminal penalties should be introduced for cartel conduct. The Government accepted this recommendation in principle and set up a work- ing party to consider the implementation difficulties that had been identified in the Dawson Report. Nothing further was heard from the Government un- til February 2005 when the Government announced that it would introduce criminal penalties for serious cartel conduct. This paper evaluates the Gov- ernment proposals and makes suggestions for their implementation.]
