DTI to investigate MG Rover

BDO partner to play central role in DTI's MG Rover investigation

Crumbling car manufacturer, MG Rover, will face a DTI investigation over the circumstances of its decline into administration after the Financial Reporting Review Panel last week raised a number of ‘questions’ it felt the department should consider.

Trade secretary Alan Johnson announced on Tuesday that he was ‘grateful’ to the FRRP for its initial investigation into the company’s accounts and that it ‘raises a number of questions that need to be answered’.

The inspectors appointed by the DTI are Gervase MacGregor, forensic accounting partner at BDO Stoy Hayward, and Guy Newey QC of Maitland Chambers, Lincolns Inn.

‘The public interest requires that the issues raised by the FRRP and developments after 2003 when the last accounts were published be investigated by independent investigators,’ said Johnson. ‘I have asked them to report to me as soon as possible and in a form which will enable the report to be made public.’
