asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will explain the workings of the Registry of Business Names.

The registry was established by the Registration of Business Names Act 1916 to receive the register documents required from businesses covered by that Act, to issue certificates and to make registered information available for public inspection. If the hon. Member will let me know his interest in any particular aspect of the registry's operations I shall be glad to give further details.
