Mike Ashley hearing
Sport Direct’s boss Mike Ashley made a dramatic appearance in front of a panel of MPs who grilled him on work conditions within the company.
Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley admitted the retailer’s working conditions could be improved ahead of today’s parliamentary hearing.
Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley said the retailer must “pull its socks up” after admitting that warehouse staff were paid below minimum wage.
Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley had far more to say than many had anticipated when he appeared before MPs in Parliament today.
The Government must do more to engage with retail and other industries that risk being “left behind” by its industrial strategy, MPs have recommended.
Retail bodies have hailed MPs’ decision to reject a no-deal Brexit as “an encouraging first step” – but urged Government to find a new solution “very quickly”.
