§ 4. Captain FAIRFAX
asked the Home Secretary if he has considered, or will consider, the expediency of making it an offence to offer shares in any company by personal canvass; and if he can give any further information as to steps he has taken, or intends to take, to protect the public against being exploited by share pushers?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister)
I have been asked to reply. As I have already pointed out, this is one of the recommendations in the Report of the Company Law Amendment Committee, and it is proposed to include it in the Bill which I hope to introduce next year. I would also refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer given him by the Home Secretary on 24th June last, of which I am sending him a copy.
