unstar this property answer text <p>The Official Receiver is under a statutory duty to investigate the cause of failure of any company in compulsory liquidation and generally its business, dealings and affairs, which will include any actions taken which have been detrimental to creditors or pension schemes, and will do so in the case of British Steel. He has a duty to report any potential misconduct of directors to my rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.</p><p>In the case of British Steel, the Secretary of State has written to the Insolvency Service, specifically requesting that the investigation not only looks at the conduct of the directors immediately prior to and at insolvency, but also at the investments made in the company (noting previous commitments given in this regard) and the potential value transferred out of the company.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>Over recent years, the Government has implemented statutory and non-statutory reforms to improve the whistleblowing framework in all sectors. This includes guidance for whistleblowers on how in practice to make disclosures while preserving their employment protections; and guidance for employers including a non-statutory code of practice.</p><p>We have fulfilled the commitment to keep the Prescribed Persons list up to date – these are individuals and bodies that a whistleblower can approach in order to make a disclosure. Guidance is in place for Prescribed Persons and we review the list annually.</p><p>The most recent reform was a new legislative requirement for most prescribed persons to produce an annual report on whistleblowing disclosures made to them by workers. Relevant prescribed persons were required to publish the first of these reports by the end of September 2018.</p><p>Whilst it is right and proper that Government reviews the whistleblowing framework, we believe that it would be premature to do so now. We need to allow the existing changes that we have introduced to embed and provide the necessary evidence of their impact over time that would support a meaningful review.</p>
