HC Deb 20 December 1968 vol 775 cc517-8W
Mr. Grant

asked the Minister of Technology, how many forms are required by his Department to be returned by limited liability companies; and whether he will set out a list of such forms in the Official Report.

Mr. Benn

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade on 11th December relating to returns under the Companies Acts. My Department has no forms specifically designed for required completion by limited liability companies. Forms for statistical purposes may go to limited liability companies but the number of these will depend on the size and activities of the particular companies. As stated by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on 19th November, the Central Statistical Office has plans for the better control and co-ordination of statistical forms used by Government Departments.—[Vol. 775, c. 140–1; Vol. 773, c. 1114.]
