HC Deb 02 July 1963 vol 680 c23W
9. Mr. Wade

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will introduce legislation requiring that public companies shall publish annually full details of donations given to outside bodies of a primarily charitable or political nature.

Mr. Erroll

No. If the donations are relatively large disclosure may well be required by the Companies Act under which a company's accounts must show a true and fair view of a company's profit or loss.
