If Beaver Management Services Limited continue to supply workers or a provide a labour service without a licence to the regulated sectors, the GLA would take prosecution action.
Paul Whitehouse, Chairman of the Gangmasters Licensing Authority said:
“Anybody who is in control of workers needs to be fit to do so, and needs to respect the position they are in.”
