OFT recommendations on private actions in competition law

OFT paper (55 pages, PDF) setting out its opinion on possible legislative changes related to private actions in competition law. This updates the April 2007 discussion paper.

On the question of "passing on" for damage estimation:

The OFT considers that the most appropriate forum in which to deal with this issue is in the context of discussions on the forthcoming European Commission White Paper on damages actions for breach of the EC antitrust rules and any resulting EU measure. Any reforms implemented at national level should be consistent with the approach adopted at EU level.
