74. Mr. FRED HALL
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the fact that, although the St. David's Gold Mines, Limited, has from time to time paid considerable dividends and thereby attracted fresh capital, no profits appear at any time to have been made; and if it is proposed to take action against the company, which is now practically without assets?
I have no information to the effect stated in the question. The matter is not one in which the Board of Trade have any jurisdiction.
Mr. FRED HALL
Has not the Board of Trade any jurisdiction in similar cases? Is the chairman of this company Mr. Godfrey Isaacs, of Marconi fame; and is that the reason why no action has been taken?
