HC Deb 28 October 1987 vol 121 c295W
Mr. Cohen

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will make a statement on her Majesty's Government's proposals in respect of register of shareholders.

Mr. Maude

The consultative document "Delivery of Annual Accounts and Returns to the Registrar of Companies", issued in August 1986, raised a number of issues on registers of shareholders. I hope to make a statement in the next few weeks on company law deregulation more generally which will cover our intentions in this area.
