HC Deb 17 June 1915 vol 72 c785

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the firm called Baryta, Limited, made any reply to the request of the Treasury that the recent advertisement inviting subscriptions to an issue of debentures should be withdrawn; whether subscriptions are still being invited; whether any penalty attaches to a person or firm disregarding the Order in Council and seeking fresh issues of capital without the Treasury sanction; and what are the means at the disposal of the Treasury for enforcing the Order?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second, I have not the necessary information. In reply to the third and fourth parts of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given by my predecessor to my hon. Friend the Member for the Bridgeton Division on 18th May.
