Suitably refreshed, Mr. Illsley, we forge on. The clause is designed to ensure that there is a place at which a document may be served for all companies registered in Great Britain, including registered overseas companies. However, it would seem that it does not catch companies registered in Northern Ireland. When the business of such companies is conducted in, say, England, sense would dictate that service should be capable of being effected in England at the companies’ principal places of business.
I am slightly at a loss for words. Obviously that was a remarkably successful break. The Minister is off to a good start and let us hope it continues.
