asked the Minister for Trade if he will introduce legislation to ensure that land and property companies operating in the United. Kingdom shall, if registered abroad, be obliged to make public the names of their directors and major shareholders.
No. Companies which are incorporated outside Great Britain and which have a place of business within Great Britain are required, under section 407 of the Companies Act 1948, to deliver information to the Registrar of Companies including a list containing details of the directors of the company. This information is available for inspection by the public.
