HC Deb 12 March 1925 vol 181 c1501
32. Marquess of HARTINGTON

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the fact that the management of a company in the hands of the Receiver is unable to hand over to a hospital money held by it as employés' contributions to a joint hospital fund, and that in some cases money deducted from wages for the purpose of payment to hospitals has been held up nearly two years; and whether, having regard to the fact that such money cannot under any circumstances be regarded as part of the assets of a company, he can arrange for it to be paid over to hospitals without unnecessary delay?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister)

I have been asked to reply. If my Noble Friend will give me particulars of any specific case which he has in mind, I will have it looked into.
