HARLOW MP, Robert Halfon discussed the future of the Churchgate Hotel with the boss of the administrators.

Mr Halfon said: “At the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham, I had a meeting with the chairman of Deloitte to raise concerns about the treatment of employees at the former Churchgate Street hotel.

I had a further meeting today with a senior partner for over an hour to discuss what had happened. Clearly the company who owned the hotel was in serious financial trouble and had been in administration for over 5 years; the hotel had lost £600,000 in the last few years.

“The company that was running the hotel was wound up with a court order two days after its closure.

“Mr Edwards apologised to me for the confusion and unease felt by hard working and loyal staff in terms of the consultation about what was going to happen. He also said that they would review their decision about why they had not let me, as MP, sit with the employees during the announcement of redundancy terms. Deloitte also has pledged to me that they will do everything to help workers achieve proper salary and redundancy payments. I would urge any employee who is continuing to have problems to get in contact with me. ”
