§ MR. H. H. MARKS (Kent, Thanet)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if he can say what was the result of the conference of representatives of the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, which was held on the 4th of this month at the suggestion of the Board of Trade, with the object of ascertaining whether the law relating to joint stock companies in those islands could be made more uniform with that in force in this country?
§ *The SECRETARY TO THE BOARD of TRADE (Mr. KEARLEY,) Devonport
A very useful discussion took place at the conference referred to, and there was a general agreement that greater uniformity in the law relating to joint stock companies was desirable. It is hoped 775 that in course of time this general agreement may be followed by legislative results.
