Philip Green, owner of the country’s largest privately owned retail company Arcadia, seen here at the Arcadia offices in London, 4th April 2008.Commissioned by Michael Sullivan for Retail Week.

Iain Wright MP, chair of the business, innovation and skills committee has written to Green asking her to provide more details on the “complex web” of private businesses owned by the Green family and for an explanation of her husband’s role in their operation.

Wright said: “The evidence so far points to a complex and very opaque web of privately-owned family businesses which helped make the deal possible. These complicated arrangements make it very difficult to trace where all the funds have gone.

“We are keen to follow the money and look forward to Lady Green in her capacity as owner and ultimate beneficiary of these companies writing to us to explain some of these arrangements and to set out what income her businesses have received from BHS,” he added.

Green has until June 28 to respond.
