HC Deb 13 March 1968 vol 760 c301W
91. Mr. Grant

asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the number of company winding-up orders made by the courts in 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966 and 1967, respectively; and if he will express these as a percentage of the number of companies on the Register for the years in question.

Mr. Darling

As the answer contains several figures, I am circulating it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

The information is as follows:

Year Total Winding-up Orders made by the Courts in Great Britain As a Percentage of the total Number of Companies on the Registers
Per cent.
1963 742 0.156
1964 738 0.144
1965 834 0.155
1966 969 0.174
1967 1,280 0.225
