Reuters quotes Gareth Mills on the CMA’s deadline extension of the Microsoft Activision Blizzard deal

Gareth Mills, Partner, says that the CMA is going to have to find a way through:

"The matter of form is they can't reopen a decision they've already taken. But that is what they will be doing in all but name."
