§ 39. Mr. Erroll
asked the Minister of Supply which of the companies listed in the Third Schedule of the Iron and Steel Bill have wholly-owned subsidiaries in overseas countries.
§ Mr. G. R. Strauss
As certain subsidiaries of Third Schedule companies are registered overseas, particulars of the ownership of their share capital are not readily available, and my information as to wholly-owned subsidiaries may therefore be incomplete. I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT the names of those companies which, according to my present information, have wholly-owned overseas subsidiaries.
§ Mr. Erroll
Does the Minister realise that the staffs of these overseas companies view with great dismay the prospect of becoming servants of the Labour Government?
§ Following are the names:
- Guest, Keen and Nettlefolds Ltd.
- Hadfields Ltd.
- John Lysaght Ltd.
- John Summers & Sons Ltd.
- Richard Thomas & Baldwins Ltd.
- Stewarts & Lloyds Ltd.
- The Millom & Askam Hematite Iron Co. Ltd.
