HC Deb 10 December 1986 vol 107 cc185-6W
Mr. Allan Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will institute an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the liquidation of Transworld Festival Company.

Mr. Howard

Transworld Festival Company was a trading style used by Transworld Leisure plc against which a winding-up order was made in the Liverpool district registry of the High Court of Justice on 10 October 1986. Accordingly, the Official Receiver, who is also liquidator of the company, is under a statutory duty to investigate its affairs and his inquiries are continuing.
