UK: Work and Pensions Committee advocates governance reforms

The House of Commons Work and Pensions Committee has published a report, based on its BHS inquiry, in which it responds to the Government's corporate governance green paper: see here. The Committee's report contains three principal recommendations, including extending the reach of the UK Corporate Governance Code (on a comply or explain basis) to large private companies and adding pension scheme trustees to the list of matters to which directors must have regard in the context of their duty to promote the success of the company under section 172 of the Companies Act 2006.
