asked the Secretary of State for Trade how many companies in Hampshire, Wiltshire and Dorset have gone into liquidation in each of the last three months; and to what he attributes these liquidations.

Such information as is available relates only to compulsory liquidations. Winding up orders made either in the High Court or the appropriate county court where the company has its registered office or place of business in Hampshire, Wiltshire or Dorset, for each of the three months to 28th February 1975 are as follows:

HampshireWiltshireDorset
December 1974620
January 1975500
February 1975510
1630
The areas covered by county courts having jurisdiction in bankruptcy and companies winding up do not necessarily coincide with county boundaries. In due course the Official Receivers concerned will report to the appropriate court, and to the creditors and contributories, their views as to the reasons for the failures.
