The Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), my right hon. Friend Vince Cable, has no plans to prohibit the use of nominee directors by UK companies. However, BIS is currently reviewing the legal and enforcement framework that applies to all company directors, including nominee directors, to ensure that it continues to provide an effective deterrent to misconduct. The review will report to the Secretary of State in spring 2013.
