asked the President of the Board of Trade how many limited partnerships have been registered in each of the three Kingdoms under the Act of 1907, what are the total sums agreed to be contributed by limited partners in each kingdom, and the general nature of the business of each limited partnership?
The number of limited partnerships registered up to the 31st March last is as follows: England, 176; Scotland, 12; Ireland, none. The total sums agreed to be contributed by limited partners in the 176 partnerships registered in England is £322,480 14s. 9d., and by limited partners in the 12 partnerships registered in Scotland £8,120. As to the businesses of the 188 limited partnerships I have no classified information to offer to my hon. Friend.
