HC Deb 29 June 1865 vol 180 cc925-6

said, he wished to ask the President of the Board of Trade, Whether it be true that a Charter of Incorporation has been granted by the Crown to the "British India and Colonial Trust and Agency Corporation (Limited)," and, if so, that he will state the grounds on which such Charter was granted to a Company constituted under the provisions of the "Limited Liability Act;" whether similar privileges will be accorded to other Companies similarly constituted; and whether he will consent to lay the Correspondence in the particular case in question upon the table of the House?


said, in reply, that the Crown had not been advised to grant a Charter to the Company in question. There would be no objection to lay the Correspondence on the table when it was concluded. With regard to giving similar privileges to other Companies, every case must be decided on its merits.
