HC Deb 25 February 1970 vol 796 c332W
68. Mr. Hugh Jenkins

asked the President of the Board of Trade what consideration he gave to the fact that the products of the Metal Box Company fall into four different categories of the Standard Industrial Classification before deciding not to refer the question of the Company's contravention of Section 17 of the Companies Act, 1967, to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

I considered the requirements of the Act and the description in the director's report of the business of the company and its subsidiaries.
