HC Deb 18 November 1982 vol 32 c221W
Mr. Timothy Smith

asked the Minister for Trade what progress he is making in the consolidation of company law.

The Attorney-General

I have been asked to reply.

Good progress is being made in the exercise of consolidating the Companies Act. Although it is proving to be an elaborate and difficult exercise because of the exceptional volume and complexity of the legislation in question, it is hoped to introduce a consolidation Bill or Bills in the Session 1983–84 with a view to enactment in 1984.
