Date: 12 August 2019. Duration: 16:42

Theresa May entered 10 Downing Street in July 2016 with grand hopes of fixing Britain’s “dysfunctional” markets in favor of hard-pressed consumers. But she was pushed from office three years later with reforms to consumer protection, competition in digital markets, foreign investment screening and the audit market half-done. They now lie in the hands of business secretary Andrea Leadsom – and a divided parliament. In this discussion from MLex’s London bureau, senior correspondent Matthew Holehouse and antitrust correspondents Simon Zekaria and Victoria Ibitoye consider the priorities and possibilities ahead.
