Clause 4—(Right To Demand A Poll)

Volume 441: debated on Monday 28 July 1947

I beg to move, in page 5, line 44, after "members," to insert:

"having the right to vote at the meeting."
I hope this Amendment will commend itself to hon. Members on all sides. As the Clause stands, members of a company not having the right to vote at that meeting may nevertheless be entitled to demand a poll. For example, preference shareholders might do this at a meeting at which only ordinary members were entitled to vote.

Amendment agreed to.
