HC Deb 08 July 1918 vol 108 c5
5. Major NEWMAN

asked the President of the Hoard of Trade whether he will ascertain the actual purchasers of the business of Bruno Schulze and Sons, Sudbury, Suffolk, trading as the Sudbury Casings Company, and recently sold under the Trading With the Enemy Act to one J. T. Cant in trust for a third party; will he say what was the nature of the business carried out by the Sudbury Casings Company; and what business is carried out by its actual purchasers?


I am informed that the business of Bruno Schulze and Sons, of Sudbury, Suffolk, was recently submitted for sale by auction and that the highest bidder was Mr. Cant, of Colchester, who, it has since been stated to the Controller, is the manager of a firm of gut manufacturers, Messrs. Wambach and Company, of Colchester. The sale has not been completed and further inquiry is being made. The business sold is described as the manufacture of sausage skins and the spinning of gut.
