Protection of Shareholders Bill 2009

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

In 2009 UKSA worked with Bill Cash MP to prepare his Protection of Shareholders Bill. This was a fully worked proposal for representation of private shareholders by a Shareholder Committee. It required that private shareholders could be identified on the share register. This could not be done then and, scandalously, still cannot be done today (2017)

These are the papers prepared at that time:
The Bill (POSB)
Press release
Press handout
Briefing book

An even earlier UKSA paper (2003) by Maurice Gillibrand is just as relevant today
Shareholder Select Committees
