§ Mr. Trotter
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why the Companies (Floating Charges and Receivers) (Scotland) Act 1972 to which several references are made in the recently published Cork report is out of print and not obtainable from Her Majesty's Stationery Office.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
[pursuant to his reply, 14 June 1982, c. 200]: The Companies (Floating Charges and Receivers) (Scotland) Act 1972 sold 3,000 copies in the year after publication. Since then issues have averaged only 80 copies a year. This low level of demand did not justify a reprint after it went out of print in September 1981. Photocopies of the Act or particular sections may be ordered through any Government bookshop or agent.
