HC Deb 09 March 1896 vol 38 c442

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade, when will the Joint Stock Companies' Law Amendment Bill be introduced; and, will the Government be willing to refer it to a Joint Committee of both Houses of Parliament?


The Bill has already been introduced into the House of Lords. I have considered the question of referring the Bill to a Joint Committee, and have come to the conclusion that the best course will be to adopt the usual practice and have the Bill considered by Committees of both Houses.
