HC Deb 03 December 1975 vol 901 cc670-1W
Mr. Cant

asked the Secretary of State for Trade why no charge has been brought following the investigation of Bernard Russell Ltd., despite the conclusion of the inspectors that fraud was perpetrated in one instance.

Mr. Clinton Davis

The report of the inspectors and the results of additional enquiries by the police were considered by the Department's legal officers and by Standing Counsel. In the light of all the information, the latter advised against proceedings.
