Dargan to question Major over Mayflower

Link: Administration for Mayflower energy business

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.
