HC Deb 24 October 1916 vol 86 c993W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the enemy-owned shares in Siemens Brothers have yet been sold by the Public Trustee; if so, to whom; and for what price?


I am considering, in consultation with my expert advisers, the British firms or classes of firms to whom it is desirable in the interests' of the electrical industry of the country that the shares of Siemens Brothers and Company, Limited, should be sold. I hope this will shortly be decided, and the Public Trustee will then be in a position to deal with the shares which have been vested in him.
