Affected market: Quarrying of slate
Found not to qualify.
On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair
Trading has decided that the completed acquisition by Burlington Slate
Limited of certain assets of Kirkstone Quarries Limited does not qualify
for investigation under the mergers provisions of the Enterprise Act
2002 (the Act), because neither the UK turnover test nor the share of
supply test in section 23 of the Act is met. A relevant merger situation
has, therefore, not been created.
