§ MR. FISHER (Fulham)
I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether all Companies authorised by Parliament to raise either original or additional share capital since the year 1890 have complied with the provisions of Section 113 146 of The Stamp Act, 1891; and whether he would have any objection to granting a Return giving the names of all such Companies and the amount due and paid under the conditions of The Stamp Act, 1891?
§ SIR W. HARCOURT
said, there had been a few cases of Companies being unable to raise the capital authorised in which the Inland Revenue had been unable to obtain payment of the duty, there being no assets. He saw no objection to granting the Return.
