HC Deb 01 July 1935 vol 303 c1512

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will follow any share manipulations by the holding companies who are now the owners of the equities of the statutory companies purchased some years ago by an American group of financiers with a view to seeing that adequate liquid resources and reserves are maintained?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Runciman)

I am not clear what possibilities my hon. Friend has in mind. Perhaps he will be good enough to let me have particulars.


Is it possible for the right hon. Gentleman to furnish the House with particulars of any such transaction?
