§ Mr. Anderson
asked the Secretary for Trade if, in the light of the Consolidated Gold Fields' case, and other recent cases, he will seek to amend the Companies Acts so as more effectively to regulate dawn raids in share dealings.
§ Mr. Eyre:
The non-statutory authorities have this matter in hand, and I see no 48W need to deal with it in the Companies Acts. On 7 August the Council for the Securities Industry imposed a temporary ban on its members' participation in such raids and has since been devising permanent rules to control such dealings which it hopes to announce shortly.
