HC Deb 26 July 1971 vol 822 c16W
Mr. Cant

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many times the Companies Act Consultative Committee has met since it was established; when it is proposed that it will meet next; what representations he has received from shareholders for the re-convening of this committee; and what action he has taken.

Mr. Ridley

As the Committee last met in 1956 information about the number of its meetings is not readily available. A request that the Committee be reconvened was received last year. It was refused.
