HC Deb 13 November 1917 vol 99 cc234-5W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, under The Companies (Particulars as to Directors) Act, 1917, the Board of Trade are prepared to accept as a sufficient description of director and the actual occupation of a director the specification of the name with the addition of the words director of companies, in addition to any other occupation; whether it is essential to include the full details of every company in which a director is interested; and what advantage in showing alien interest is the demand for such detailed information intended to serve?


Legal advice is being obtained on the points referred to by my hon. Friend.
