HC Deb 21 February 1888 vol 322 c1005
MR. WATT (Glasgow, Camlachie)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, having regard to the opinions expressed by certain Lords Justices on Appeal, Her Majesty's Government will consider as to the desirability of introducing a clause into the Limited Liability Amendment Bill, releasing the holders of Stock in Companies, issued at a discount, from further liability beyond the price of issue, in all cases where registered contracts have been duly filed?

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

The matter referred to by the hon. Member is under the consideration of the Member of the Government in charge of the Limited Liability Amendment Bill; but I am unable to state what clauses will or will not be in a Bill which has not yet been introduced.
