Yorkshire MP challenges Leeds United and KPMG

Yorkshire MP calls for investigation into events surrounding Leeds collapse and revivial, and urges the taxman to challenge administrators from KPMG for not recovering £7m for taxpayers

The MP for Harrogate & Knaresborough has called for the police to
investigate the collapse and subsequent revival of Leeds United Football Club,
and also to look at the role of administrators from KPMG.

MP Phil Willis
tabled
a motion in the House of Commons
calling for an inquiry into the
affairs of the club to see if any criminal activity had taken place.

He also called on administrators from KPMG to explain why they had failed to
ascertain details about the beneficiaries of offshore companies that had
invested in the club and written off debts, and their links with the club
chairman Ken Bates.

Willis also called on HM Revenue & Customs to challenge the
administrators’ decision not to recover £7m owed to taxpayers.

Leeds United challenged Willis to ‘repeat his allegations outside the House
of Commons’ and the club would ‘see him in court’, reported the BBC.

KPMG would not comment on Willis’ EDM.
