§ Mr. ROSE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions, if his Department have made any rules, as authorised by Section 5, Sub-section (4), Part II., of the Munitions of War Act, 1915, dealing with alterations of capital by controlled firms; and, if so, will he furnish the hon. Member for Aberdeen (North) with a copy of such rules?
§ Mr. JAMES HOPE
I would refer the hon. Member to (a) No. 10 of the Munitions (Limitation of Profits) Rules ordered to be printed by this House on 23rd September, 1915, and (b) to Statutory Rules and Orders No. 559, of 1918. The Rules, however, refer to the computation of profit as affected by alteration of capital, and do not regulate the alteration of capital itself. I am sending copies of these Rules to the hon. Member.
