As stated, all the enemy shareholders' rights being placed in suspense, and all trading with these shareholders or with any other enemy being interpelled, there is no principle of law which would, in my humble opinion, justify the incongruity of denominating or regarding the company itself as enemy either in character or in fact. After all, this is a question of ingenious words, useful for the purpose for which they were designed, but wholly incapable of being strained to an illegal purpose. The question has, however, been so elaborately argued both here and in the Court of Appeal and is of such general importance that it would not be right to ignore it.

The limited liability was a very useful introduction to our system, and there was no reason why foreigners should not, while dealing honestly with us, partake of the benefits of that institution, but it seems to me too monstrous to suppose that, for an unlawful because—after a declaration of war—a hostile purpose, the forms of that institution should be used, and enemies of the State, while actually at war with us, be allowed to continue trading and actually to sue for their profits in trade in an English court of justice.

What is involved in the decision of the Court of Appeal is that for all purposes to which the character and not merely the rights and powers of an artificial person are material, the personalities of the natural persons, who are its corporators, are to be ignored.

If there is an agent duly appointed, who may or may not be a shareholder, the outbreak of war does not per se terminate the agency, and the company is liable to be sued in respect of obligations and is enabled to sue to enforce its rights.
