HC Deb 22 June 1950 vol 476 c133W
Mr. Mikardo

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many cases have been reported to, or discovered by, his officers in the last convenient period of 12 months of partnerships which have failed to put the names of the partners on their notepaper; and in how many of these cases prosecutions were instituted.

Mr. H. Wilson

During the year ended 31st March, 1950, there were reported to the Board of Trade 11 cases of firms, including six partnerships, which had failed to place on their letter paper the particulars required by Section 18 (1) of the Registration of Business Names Act, 1916, and prosecutions were instituted in three of these cases, one being that of a partnership.
