HC Deb 26 July 1967 vol 751 cc157-8W
Mr. Edward Lyons

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in the light of recent experience, he will introduce legislation requiring any company registered outside the United Kingdom and calling itself a bank to obtain the permission of the Board of Trade to trade within the United Kingdom.

Mr. Jay

In preparing a further Companies Bill I will consider the recommendation of the Jenkins Committee that the Board of Trade should have power to control the name of a company, incorporated abroad and having a place of business in Great Britain, when the name is undesirable on grounds other than similarity.
