“A defendant to disqualification proceedings brought by the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform would not be entitled to have the proceedings struck out on the basis that the Secretary of State had committed a breach of duty by failing to obtain evidence or otherwise to investigate. Where, however imperfect the investigations might have been, the Secretary of State had in fact assembled evidence of a defendant’s unfitness to be concerned in the management of a company, it was for the court to determine at trial whether the Secretary of State had made out his case.”
