HC Deb 20 November 1911 vol 31 cc999-1000W

asked the Attorney-General whether he will invite the Rule Committee to consider the expediency of assimilating the practice in debenture holders' actions in cases of registered debentures to that in the winding-up department in the case of a return of capital and to the practice outside the court, so that a registered debenture holder shall be put to the trouble and expense of

producing his security only when a payment is to be made, instead of merely to enable the court to verify the register?


The suggestion of the hon. Member will be laid by me before the Lord Chancellor, who presides in the Rule Committee.
