Mr. Peter Rees

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many applications to register companies are currently before the Registrar of Com- panies; and what is now the average length of time that it takes the Registrar currently to consent to the use of a name for a company and to register a company.

Mr. Noble

Some 19,000 applications are outstanding at present. The average time for name clearance and registration is currently about eight weeks.
