Goldman seeks permission to let execs give written evidence to MPs in BHS probe

Goldman Sachs Still

Wall Street's most powerful investment bank has rejected a demand from MPs probing the collapse of BHS that would drag its executives deeper into their inquiry.

Sky News has learnt that Goldman Sachs wrote on Friday to two House of Commons select committees to suggest that three senior bankers provide written evidence rather than appearing in person.

Goldman's letter is understood to rebut a number of assertions made by Dominic Chappell, BHS' former owner, when he gave evidence during a stormy hearing this week.

The bank's response to the MPs came days before Sir Philip Green - the tycoon who sold BHS to Mr Chappell's consortium, Retail Acquisitions, last year - is due to give evidence.
