An MP is to call in the Serious Fraud Office after a collapsed free school leader used a “false VAT number” when billing a council for consultancy services.
Alun Morgan was the sole listed director of Morgan Bristol Limited, which was registered to the steel fire escape door on the side of Manchester Creative Studio School, where Morgan was chair of directors. The door’s address is painted above it in what looks like white paint.
Morgan’s company was paid more than £220,000 by Oldham Council for procurement and ICT services over two years. But the firm has never filed accounts and has since been struck off by Companies House.
