§ 27. Mr. Hal Miller
asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether he intends to deal with the position of non-voting shares in the forthcoming companies Bill.
§ Mr. Miller
Will my hon. Friend take into account the widespread concern that is felt that something should be done about non-voting shares and the previous commitments of the Conservative Party in that respect?
§ Sir Derek Walker-Smith
Will my hon. Friend indicate shortly and in summary what are those circumstances?
§ Mr. Eyre
There are such circumstances, for example, in connection with the television industry where the Home Office wishes to keep control upon the respectability of those who hold those shares. There are other practical illustrations that I should be glad to discuss with my right hon. and learned Friend.
