Dargan to question Major over Mayflower
Nick Dargan, the Deloitte administrator at embattled bus-maker, Mayflower, is set to speak to former British prime minister John Major as he investigates the work of directors at the company.
Deloitte could not be reached for comment today, but a story in the Guardian quotes a spokeswoman for the firm – in response to a question about Major – as saying: ‘I imagine everyone on the board will be liased with.’
Major was a member of Mayflower’s audit committee until last year, when he gave up his non-executive post.
He could be grilled as part of Dargan’s investigation, under the Company Directors Disqualification Act, to assess whether he can file a ‘clean’ or ‘adverse’ report to the DTI.
Based on this submission, the DTI has the power to disqualify directors or pursue other remedies.
Problems at Mayflower surfaced last week.
