Pressure was again mounting on Coventry MP and Paymaster General
Geoffrey Robinson to resign.
The Conservatives Party claims it will hand over a dossier to the Department of Trade
detailing 13 breaches of company law by firms connected to Mr Robinson.
The Opposition claims concern alleged incomplete or inaccurate accounts from firms the
firms. The allegations go back the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Just last week Robinson apologised to the House of Commons for not registering company
directorships. He appeared to have roughed out calls for him to quit and has had
unstinting support from Prime Minister Geoffrey Robinson.
There were also reports at the weekend that the DTI is looking into accounts of a
company the MP chaired.
Tory leader William Hague led the claims for Robinson, who was until last year a
director of Coventry City, to go.
"Now it appears he is under investigation by the Department of Trade and Industry
and we have got one minister, Peter Mandelson, sitting in judgement on another.
"Tony Blair said the government had to be purer than pure but does he really think
Geoffrey Robinson is purer than pure? It's time for him to go."
