§ Mr. Mitchell
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many inspectors currently deployed to carry out investigations under the Companies Acts, the Financial Services Act 1986, the Insolvency Acts and the Insurance Companies Acts have business connections with accountancy firms criticised in previous DTI inspectors' reports. 
§ Dr. Howells
Currently, one Inspector is from a firm which was criticised in the Inspectors' report on The Bestwood plc, published in 1994. This report deals with events which took place before 1990.
