HC Deb 22 December 1983 vol 51 c396W
Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will appoint an inspector under the Companies Act to look into the affairs of Davidson Industries Ltd. of Hungerford, now in liquidation.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

I assume my hon. Friend is referring to Davidson Macgregor and Company Limited which has used the trading style Davidson Industries. This company is not in liquidation but a creditor's petition for its compulsory winding up is to be heard on 23 January 1984. If a winding up order is made, the Official Receiver has a statutory duty to investigate. If it is not, ray Department will consider appointing Inspectors.
