HC Deb 20 May 1981 vol 5 cc84-5W
Mr. Clinton Davis

asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether any action has been taken by the Registrar of Companies on matters covered by the proposals in the Companies (No.2) Bill relating to the screening of company names; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Eyre

A consultative document was sent by my Department on 8 May to a number of organisations with a particular interest in these provisions. It invited their views on two alternative possibilities for amendments to the Companies (No. 2) Bill, now before the House. The Government will wish to consider the response to this document before reaching a final view on amendments. Copies have been placed in the Library.
