U.K. MPs Call For Investigation Into Google's Market Dominance [pcpro.co.uk]

MPs have said there is "growing evidence" that Google is abusing its market position to hurt other search firms.

Google is already being investigated by the EU over anti-competition complaints lodged by UK search firm Foundem, as well as Microsoft.

However, MPs have suggested the EU investigation isn't enough, and Tory MP Dominic Raab said in a debate that the Government shouldn't wait for the "cumbersome, clumping, clumsy conclusions of the European Commission to preserve our own free market at home."
