§ 23. Sir WALTER PRESTON
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he received in January last an application from over 20 per cent. of the shareholders in British Cement Products, Limited, asking the Board of Trade to appoint an inspector to investigate the company's affairs; whether such an inspector has been appointed; and, if so, when he will commence his investigation?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
An application of this kind was received in January last. The affairs of the company have been investigated by an eminent accountant, and it was considered desirable to await his report before deciding whether an inspector should be appointed. This 16 report has now been received, and an inspector will be appointed as soon as possible.
