HC Deb 09 February 1993 vol 218 c566W
Mr. Cousins

To ask the President of the Board of Trade how many reports and complaints of the unfit conduct of directors were submitted to the insolvency service in 1991 and 1992; and how many disqualification orders against directors were made in 1991 and 1992.

Mr. Neil Hamilton

[holding answer 8 February 1993]: The figures requested by the hon. Member are:

1991 1992
Unfitted conduct reports 5,747 6,607
Disqualification orders made 317 409

The figures are not comparable on a year by year basis because of the interval between receipt of an unfitted report and the making, in appropriate cases, of a disqualification order.
