INVITATION TO COMMENT



Anticipated acquisition by General Electric Company of the OSI specialties

The Office of Fair Trading is considering whether arrangements are in progress

of a relevant merger situation under the merger provisions of the Enterprise Act
2002.  Should it be found to be a relevant merger situation, the OFT will
further consider whether the creation of that situation may be expected to
result in a substantial lessening of competition within any market or markets in
the United Kingdom for goods or services that warrants reference to the
Competition Commission for investigation and report.
