The number of holders of the Royal Warrant in Great Britain is 1,182, of whom 559 are on the King's National Roll. The balance includes, no doubt, a number of firms which are either small or highly specialised. But a considerable number might reasonably be expected to enrol. I am taking further steps to bring the matter to the notice of those Royal Warrant holders who have not yet enrolled, and might reasonably be expected to do so.
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the advisability of publishing a further list of county, city, borough, and district councils who are not qualified for the King's Roll?
We give returns periodically in the Labour Gazette which will probably help my hon. and gallant Friend, but it would be a very formidable list to give the names of all the councils that are not on the list. It would be a very considerable list, but I will consider the point and see whether we can afford to do it.
