HC Deb 08 July 1983 vol 45 c198W
Mr. Iain Mills

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he is satisfied with the operation of the Partnership Act 1890; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

The Partnership Act 1890 has survived for approaching a century without attracting any serious volume of criticism, although there are occasional complaints, such as the one to which my hon. Friend has just called my attention. I shall reply to his letter of 4 July as soon as possible and arrange for a copy to be placed in the Library.
