HC Deb 14 December 1911 vol 32 c2507

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he was aware that at the recent annual meeting of the Bank of Bombay, or Presidency Bank, a Parsee gentleman, with the slightest qualification as an accountant and no professional training, was elected as auditor; and whether he would impose upon the Presidency Banks the obligation of their audit being conducted by chartered accountants?


At the last annual meeting of the bank, held in August last, the existing auditors, one of whom was a Parsee gentleman, were re-elected. It is not proposed to interfere with the action of the shareholders in re-electing him.
