HC Deb 14 July 1980 vol 988 c395W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will investigate, with a view to prosecution under section 72 of the Companies Act 1980, contraventions of the provisions relating to insider dealing in the case of the bid for Wilkinson Match.

Mr. Eyre

I am in touch with the Stock Exchange, which is examining recent dealings in this company's shares. If this or other evidence warrants it, my Department will consider action under the 1980 Act.
