Wherefore your petitioner prays that your Honourable House may be pleased to Order a Bill of Review of the matters set forth or to Order such other enquiry or course as to your Honourable House may seem fit in order to examine and evaluate the said miscarriage and to give relief to all other the Companies named together with their bona fide Creditors and/or Contributories in the said Liquidations and the right of the last named to the enjoyment of free association by restoration of such Companies to the Register (due allowance being made in cases of the Wolverhampton Group of Steel Companies for the properly ascertained Compensation payable and allowable to each in its own right pursuant to the two several Nationalisations of the Steel Industry which have occurred and of whose benefits (they) have been denied less such sums as were realised and properly applied in each several Liquidation on fair and level terms as is and has been given to all other Her Majesty's Subjects.And your petitioner as in duty bound, will ever Pray, &c.
