P&O Ferries boss Peter Hebblethwaite is unfit to lead a firm, Grant Shapps tells watchdog

Updated: May 13

Grant Shapps has written to the boss of the Insolvency Service arguing his “firm belief” that the chief executive of P&O Ferries is “unfit to lead a British company”.


The transport secretary appeared in the Commons to unveil a “package” of nine measures that he said would force P&O Ferries to “fundamentally rethink their decision” to fire 800 British crew without notice.
