§ MR. MONK
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether any and, if so, what facilities are afforded to the holders of Suez Canal shares in this Country to record their votes by proxy at the meetings of the Suez Canal Company, without incurring the risk and expense of sending their shares to be registered in Paris?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. CHILDERS)
I am obliged to my hon. Friend for calling my attention to this subject. The Statutes of the Company contemplate the appointment of "representants" at the principal capitals, with whom shares may be deposited for this purpose. I have asked our official Directors to see that any necessary facilities in this matter are now given; but I understand that no complaint on this subject has yet reached the Company. Probably the contemplated London office will be the best place for this deposit.
