R3 comments on the Phoenix Four’s disqualification

“R3 welcomes the Insolvency Service’s decision to disqualify the four directors of MG Rovers. When the system works well, as in cases like this, it sends out a clear signal that company directors cannot act wrongfully without fear of repercussion. This action saves future losses to creditors, increases consumer confidence and protects UK plc.”
