HC Deb 28 June 1971 vol 820 c18W
Miss Devlin

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether, in light of the discretion given to management under the Companies Act, 1967, he will seek to amend that Act to make mandatory disclosure of all matters listed in Sections 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21.

Mr. Anthony Grant

Directors have discretion only in relation to Section 17 and parts of Section 16. We shall consider whether any change is desirable in the course of our review of company law.
