§ Mr. Austin Mitchell
To ask the President of the Board of Trade when will he publish the Department of Trade and Industry inspectors' report relating to(a) Pennine Commercial Holdings plc and (b) British Anzam plc.
§ Mr. Neil Hamilton
Following the conclusion of criminal proceedings, the inspectors are reviewing their interim report on Pennine Commercial Holdings plc with a view to submitting a final report. When the Pennine report is submitted, I will consider publication of the report on that company and of the report on British Anzani plc. Both relate to events concerning the Savings and Investment Bank Ltd of the Isle of Man.
