The business interests of Gavin Woodhouse should be investigated by the Serious Fraud Office and the Financial Conduct Authority, according to an influential MP.
This comes as further details of the entrepreneur’s business dealings have emerged.
John Mann, Labour MP for Bassetlaw, who has been a member of Parliament’s Treasury Select Committee for over a decade, has asked the agencies to look into the care home and hotel refurbishment schemes run by Woodhouse which were first exposed by an ITV News / Guardian investigation.
“This smells a bit like a Ponzi scheme, and it’s so complex it’s hard to be certain, but something is not right here,” he said.
