HC Deb 15 July 1946 vol 425 c140W
Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why members of the public inspecting company registers at the Company Registration Office are forbidden to take their own personal notes other than in pencil.

Sir S. Cripps:

I have been asked to reply. The Registrar of Companies considers that the restriction referred to is necessary for the proper protection of the registers, which are public documents.
