HC Deb 03 August 1926 vol 198 c2807
66. Mr. SEXTON

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, with reference to the Federation of British Industries, which is a registered organisation, what is the total income contributed by its members, and the total amount of expenditure in management and legislative purposes, respectively?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for Shoreditch. The Federation is not a registered organisation, but is incorporated under Royal Charter, and is under no obligation to submit its accounts to any Government Department.


Why is it not returned as are the trade unions?
