HC Deb 14 November 1918 vol 110 c2866
40. Captain DOUGLAS HALL

asked the Attorney-General whether he has yet completed his investigations as to the desirability of taking further proceedings under the Prevention of Corruption Act against certain directors concerned in the Immingham Dock case?

The SOLICITOR-GENERAL (Sir Gordon He wart)

My right hon. and learned Friend has asked me to reply to this question. The further inquiries have been completed, and alter an exhaustive investigation by the Director of Public Prosecutions and by counsel, proof was not forthcoming upon which to prefer any criminal charge against any director or official of the company.
