In his prepared testimony, Halfpenny said "there has been no appreciable change in General Motors' pricing" on highly competitive replacement auto parts. But be said "GM has substantially increased its list»and net prices" for items not subject to great competition. Says Nation Must Decide Halfpenny suggested the subcommittee determine whether GM has used price policy "to stifle the competition of independent manufacturers and distributors." The nation must decide, he- said, "whether it is time to invoke divestiture proceedings limiting General Motors and the. other major vehicle manufacturers to the manufacture and sale of automotive ve- licles and trucks, leaving the manufacture and distribution'of re- ilacement'parts ... to the independent service industry to provide such services more co.mpetitively, efficiently and less ex'pensively."
