The Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills has issued proceedings to disqualify Robert Philip Feld of Rottingdean, near Brighton from being a director in relation to his conduct at Aerospace & Technical Engineering Ltd.

Mr Feld is defending the proceedings which were issued under Company Director Disqualification Act 1986 (CDDA) in January 2010.

The trial was first scheduled for May 2012 but was adjourned on the application of Mr Feld to allow for further evidence. The trial was rescheduled to commence on 12 March but the High Court has ordered a further adjournment at the request of Mr Feld on the basis that he continues to abide by the voluntary undertaking he provided to the Court in May 2012.

That undertaking stated that until the final determination of the proceedings or further Court order Mr Feld will not do the following:

Be a director of a company, act as a receiver of companys property, act as an insolvency practitioner, or in any way, whether directly or indirectly, be concerned or take part in the promotion, formation or management of a company unless (in each case) he has leave of the court.
