I have two points to raise on this section. One is in regard to subsection (1) (d) and the other relates to subsection (1) (e). We followed the 1916 Act here but we have put in that one of the particulars required is that in relation to nationality, if not Irish. The existing form requires particulars of nationality and there is no question of whether it is Irish or not Irish. The words "if not Irish" should be deleted because there seems to me to be a danger that if the nationality of every partner in the firm is not Irish there might be a blank and there might be an opportunity for someone not to put in the nationality. It would be far better if the nationality were stated quite categorically rather than to have the opportunity for someone to opt out and say: "I did not notice what was there. I just left it blank." I think it is a mistake to insert the phrase "if not Irish".
Secondly, I think there should be a further subsection to Section 41 requiring all other trading names under which any person is trading to be entered. We have in the Companies Bill a similar provision requiring directors to state their other occupations. They must state all the other directorships they hold. It is highly desirable that any person registering under either of these Bills should state all his other activities; otherwise someone may be able to hide himself under a variety of business names and there would be no means of linking one with the other. It should be possible to turn up the other activities of any person who is registered.
