Dear FOI,

Can the Insolvency Service confirm whether Michael Abram Goldstein no longer works as an insolvency practitioner/trustee for Myers Clark Ltd or Myers Clark Business Recovery Ltd ( the insolvency practitioners register does not make it clear exactly which company he works for) and confirm if he now works and is listed as an insolvency practitioner for RG Insolvency Ltd ( appointed as a director from 1 February 2019) on your insolvency practitioners register.

Yours sincerely,

Ed Boyce
