HC Deb 19 January 1982 vol 16 cc112-3W
Mr. Stainton

asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether, in view of recent shareholders' meetings held or announced at Trident Television and Associated Communications Corporation, he will take steps to amend company law so as to enfranchise existing non-voting shares and prohibit or restrict the issue of such stock in any company in the future.

Mr. Eyre

Debate on this subject has continued since the Jenkins report of 1962 and I have no plans for legislation.
