HC Deb 19 July 1916 vol 84 cc1033-4W

asked whether all the shareholders in the Red Hand Compositions Company, Limited, formerly Suter, Hartmann, and Rahtjens Compositions Company, Limited, and in Holzapfels, Limited, are now British-born subjects, and, if not, how many of them are British subjects by naturalisation, and what are their original rationalities and the number of shares held by them?


In Red Hand Compositions, Limited, three shareholders holding £67,260, out of the issued capital of £140,000, are British subjects by naturalisation who were originally of German nationality. In Holzapfels, Limited, nine shareholders, holding £215,800 of the issued capital of £450,000, are naturalised British subjects who were originally of German nationality, and it is possible that there may be some additional small holdings of naturalised British subjects among the 800 shareholders of the company.
