A damning report by British lawmakers on the role of retail tycoon Philip Green in the demise of department store chain BHS is "clearly concerning", a spokeswoman for Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday. The report by Parliament's Work and Pensions and Business Committees said Green's greed and disregard for corporate governance led to the collapse of BHS and the loss of 11,000 jobs, calling the failure of the British stores group "the unacceptable face of capitalism." The report represents a test for May who promised on taking office this month to crack down on irresponsible corporate behaviour.

Foreign ministers of China (2L), Singapore (2R), Vietnam (L) and the Philippines (R) join hands before a group photo during the ASEAN-China forum on the sidelines of the ASEAN ministerial meeting in Vientiane on July 25, 2016Southeast Asian nations Monday avoided direct criticism of Beijing over its claims to the South China Sea, in a diluted statement produced after days of disagreement that gives the superpower a diplomatic victory. The 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) sidestepped any mention of a ruling by a UN-backed tribunal in early July that rejected China's territorial claims and infuriated Beijing. Instead, ASEAN, gathered in the Laos capital Vientiane for the first time since the ruling, called for "self-restraint" from all parties in the strategic waterway in a soft statement that edged away from a showdown with regional powerhouse China.

(AP Photo/Sakchai Lalit)VIENTIANE, Laos (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday stressed the importance of complying with a rules-based international system in a meeting with his counterparts from South East Asia shortly after they were unable to agree on a statement criticizing China for territorial expansion in the South China Sea.
