§ Mr. Morgan
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what representations he has received concerning the fitness of the directors and others of the AST group to be directors of companies; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Oppenheim
[holding answer 20 March 1996]: No such representations have been received. The joint voluntary liquidators have a responsibility under the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 to report to the Secretary of State on the conduct of the directors of the AST training group of companies. Their reports are likely to be submitted in the near future.
