YOUR report about Midlothian Garage (Yorkshire) Limited (April 26) requires clarification.
Midlothian Garage at Holmfirth was closed in the middle of 2003 and the garage at Leeds Road Huddersfield was actually sold to Drive Direct Motor Group Plc, on Monday March 21, 2005 and then closed on Wednesday morning (by the administrator) April 20, 2005.
An insolvency firm has been called in to handle affairs of Drive Direct Motor Group PLC at Barnsley, St Helen's, Warrington, Widnes and Huddersfield (formerly Midlothian Garage) as reported in the Examiner on Thursday, April 21, 2005. This is of course nothing to so whatsoever with Midlothian Garage (Yorkshire) Limited still registered at, but not trading in, Holmfirth as indicated by your reporter.
Incidentally, Midlothian Garage (Yorkshire) Ltd paid all its wages up to and including March 20, 2005, when Drive Direct took over all responsibilities to staff, suppliers and customers of the business at Leeds Road.
