§ 45. Mr. W. THORNE
asked the Prime Minister whether he will have a Return made giving a list of present Members of the House of Commons who are members of the board of directors and shareholders of the following companies—namely, Armstrong, Whitworth and Company, John Brown and Company, Nobels Explosives Company, Harland and Wolff, Thomas Firth and Sons, Coventry Ordnance Company, William Beardmore and Company, Cammell, Laird and Company, and Vickers, Maxim and Company?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
Lists of the directors and shareholders of the companies referred to are open to inspection at Somerset House. The preparation of the Return would involve a considerable amount of work, and, as the information desired is already available, I trust that my hon. Friend will not press to have the Return made.
