To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of P&O Ferries' decision to terminate the employment of its workforce via a pre-recorded video.
To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to review employment law following the decision of P&O Ferries to dismiss its employees via a pre-recorded video.
The Government wrote to the Insolvency Service on 23 March asking it to undertake an urgent and thorough enquiry into the recent actions of P&O Ferries, to determine whether the law has been complied with and consider prompt and appropriate action where it has not.
The Insolvency Service confirmed on 01 April that following its enquiries it has initiated both formal and civil investigations into the circumstances surrounding the redundancies made by P&O Ferries.
You will appreciate that while these investigations are being progressed it would not be appropriate to make further comment but the Insolvency Service will provide an update in due course.
