§ Q8. Mr. Carrington
To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Thursday 21 March.
§ Mr. Carrington
The proposal in the Budget to establish high street share shops is greatly welcomed by all of us who want shares in public companies to be more widely held by the public at large. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that high street share shops must conform to all the provisions of the Financial Services Act?
§ The Prime Minister
I confirm that to my hon. Friend. The proposed high street share shops will be subject to the Financial Services Act. That will certainly be made clear and I very much hope that this new way of distributing shares will be successful.
