In a model with linear demands and constant variable costs, it is shown that a welfare gain is made by restricting the relative rather than absolute prices that a monopolist can charge for a range of products. The nature of this class of restrictions is considered. One application might occur if cost levels are unknown to the regulatory authority but costs are known to be linear functions of product characteristics.
