HC Deb 10 December 1965 vol 722 c180W
Mr. Hamling

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will set up an inquiry, under Section 165 of the Companies Act, 1948, into the affairs of the British Printing Company, as the circumstances suggest that the management have been guilty of misconduct.

Mr. Darling

My right hon. Friend is watching the situation, but he is not satisfied that the Board of Trade would be justified in appointing an inspector under Section 165(b) of the Companies Act, 1948, to investigate the affairs of The British Printing Corporation Ltd.
