§ MR. LAMBERT (Devonshire, South. Molton)
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney-General whether evidence has been laid before him that a shareholder of the London and Globe Finance Corporation, after the publication of the balance-sheet of 5th December, 1900, bought further shares, believing such balance-sheet to be true; and, if so, will he reconsider his, decision not to prosecute the directors.
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir ROBERT FINLAY, Inverness Burghs)
The only evidence to this effect was that one person bought some shares at the price of 2s. 10½d. after The company had gone into liquidation. Having regard to the date of the purchase and the amount paid, this fact did not appear to me to be one which should affect my judgment.
