Dividends or Bills ?
Under the Conservative Government, all those years ago, Privatisation was the buzz word. One of the first to go was British Gas. The only problem was - the general public who subscribed for the shares didn't really understand share ownership. This was evident when the first Dividend payments went out to all the share holders. Hundreds tried to pay them back to British Gas thinking they were bills for gas used.
No wonder Registrars are sitting on cheques still unclaimed !
