MPs pledged yesterday to do everything possible to investigate the collapse of parcel delivery firm City Link.

Just before New Year, City Link — which had 2,727 employees across Britain — called in administrators after years of “substantial losses.”

Scottish affairs committee members met with a number of workers and subcontractors who lost out.

MPs on the committee are due to question transport union RMT general secretary Mick Cash in Westminster today while the Commons business committee has pressed Business Secretary Vince Cable to investigate what happened.

“We are going to use every single platform we can to continue to raise this, because I think a lot of people think this is finished but we cannot let this happen again and we need to reassure people we will do that,” shadow Scottish secretary Margaret Curran pledged.

The company employed 165 people in Scotland directly.

RMT representative at City Link’s Motherwell depot Mick Ward told the MPs: “I thought maybe my anger and bitterness would have died down a little bit, but if anything it’s getting stronger.”
