To ask the President of the Board of Trade how many small and medium-sized companies have filed modified accounts at Companies House in each year since 1990; and in how many cases the filing of such accounts was found to be unwarranted.

This matter is for Companies House. I have asked the chief executive to write to the hon. Member.

Letter from David Durham to Mr. Austin Mitchell dated 21 June 1993:

As the information requested is part of my responsibility as Registrar of Companies, I have been asked to reply to you direct.
The following modified or abbreviated accounts were accepted for filing:

Small

Medium

1990–91252,3683,767
1991–92270,7544,386
1992–93303,1255,202

Of these, in the years in question, in 6, 5 and 4 cases respectively the accounts were subsequently found to have been accepted in circumstances where the company did not meet the relevant criteria.
