HC Deb 19 June 1935 vol 303 cc367-8
42. Mr. H. WILLIAMS (for Sir JOHN POWER)

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many representations he has received on the subject of suggested amendments to the Companies Act; and whether he has yet decided that the time is now ripe to appoint a committee to consider the problem?


As regards the first part of the question, I can only say that many suggestions of varying importance and from various sources have been received since the Act was passed. Each representation made has been noted for examination in due course, but my right hon. Friend is not satisfied that the time is ripe for the appointment of a committee to consider the problem.
