asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Collooney, Ballina, and Belmullet Railway and Piers Company is incorporated under the Companies (Consolidation) Act, 1808; and whether he can give the names of the directors, its spare capital, its registered office, and the objects for which it was formed?
This company was not incorporated under the Companies (Consolidation) Act, but by a special Act of 1907. The Act states the names of certain of the first directors, the authorised capital, and the objects of the company, the principal of which are the construction of railways and piers. The latest published returns show that of £2,250,000 authorised capital £100,300 had been paid up at the end of 1912. The principal office of the company appears to be in Winchester House, E.C.
