HC Deb 14 February 1977 vol 926 c1W
14. Mr. Gwilym Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what proposals he has for exempting individuals or groups from disclosing their shareholdings under the provisions of the Companies Act 1976; if he will list the individuals concerned; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Clinton Davis

As announced on 3rd February, we expect to bring Sections 24 to 27, disclosure of interests in shares, into operation on 18th April. I am unable to elaborate at this stage on arrangements for exemptions under Section 27(9), as consultations with the Bank of England are not yet complete.
