HC Deb 12 December 1950 vol 482 cc131-2W
57. Mr. Molson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer under what enactment the consent of the Treasury is required for the removal of the registered office of a limited liability company out of the Kingdom; and how many companies have been given this permission since the termination of hostilities.

Mr. Gaitskell

I presume that the hon. Member is referring to permission to transfer abroad the control of a company in which case the relevant enactment is subsection 2 of Section 30 of the Exchange Control Act, 1947.

Since this Act came into force on 1st October, 1947, 30 companies are known to have been given permission, but records for the first few months are not complete.

62. Mr. Erroll

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish a list of companies to whom he has given approval this year for the transfer of their registered offices to places abroad.

Mr. Gaitskell
