§ 9. Mr. Touche
asked the President of the Board of Trade the date on which the provisions of the Companies Act, 1947, relating to accounts are to be brought into force; and whether they will apply to all accounts published after that date or to accounts made up for periods ending after that date.
§ Mr. H. Wilson
As I informed my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for North Portsmouth (Major Bruce) on 27th November, the provisions of the Companies Act, 1947, relating to accounts will take effect from 1st July next, and will consequently apply to all accounts required to be laid before a company in general meeting on or after that date.
