Since Office Angels Limited began business in 1986, each of its branches has been inspected by an employment agency licensing inspector. No evidence to justify revocation of a licence was discovered.The hon. Member will know that specific information about Mr. Rosen has just been passed to the Department. My noble Friend Lord Strathclyde will write to the hon. Member as soon as the information has been fully considered.
