asked the Minister for Trade whether he proposes to transfer to the private sector some of the functions of the Companies Registration Office.

I am not satisfied that all the functions of the Companies Registration Office need to be carried out by a Government Department. I am inviting a number of companies and organisations to put forward their suggestions for taking over certain of the functions either by themselves or by other parties.At the same time my Department is considering what steps would be beneficial for both the user and the taxpayer. Any legislation is unlikely in the present Parliament, but I hope to bring forward proposals as soon as possible.
