§ Mr. Meacher
To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will now reconsider his decision to exclude Mr. Stephan Adolph Kock from the disqualification proceedings concerning the directors of Astra board between 1986 to 1991.
§ Mr. Neil Hamilton
Under section 8 of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 the Secretary of State may apply for the disqualification of directors if it appears from a report made by inspectors that it is in the public interest to do so. I have been advised that the report justifies proceedings only against those directors against who summons have been issued.
