Nigel Griffiths (born 20 May 1955, Glasgow) is a Labour MP for Edinburgh South. He was Deputy Leader of the House of Commons until 2007, and before that has held a number of government positions, including Minister for Construction, Minister for Competition and Consumer Affairs, Minister for Coal Health Compensation, Minister for Small Businesses and Minister for Enterprise.[1]


He resigned from Government in March 2007 over his opposition to funding new Trident nuclear submarines.[2]

Affiliations

  • Non-executive Director, (remunerated)[3] Jabbar Group, Glasgow - Global business company focusing on technology, architecture, master planning, city developers, corporate and retail travel, human resource management, media, leisure and international property investment[4]
  • Non-executive,[5] Public Interest Foundation - associated charitable foundation. The precise wording in Griffiths register of interests is 'Remunerated directorships: The Jabbar Group and Public Interest Foundation (non-executive); an infrastructure company and associated charitable foundation.'[6] This is odd as Griffiths is not registered as a directo of Public Interest foundation and in its accounts of February 2008 it declares that it did no business and has no resources.[7]
