CAR LOAN BOSS WINS JOB FIGHT.

A CIVIL servant sacked by the Ministry of Defence over the loan of a car has won his unfair dismissal claim.

Alan Ely, director of the Army Base Repair Organisation in Stirling, was dismissed last year when a probe into the contracts at the base revealed he had been given a loan of a car by a sub-contractor after his was stolen in December 1994.

He had offered to pay for the use of the car but the firm involved refused as he returned it to them fully valeted and with a full tank of petrol.

Yesterday, an Edinburgh tribunal found that although Mr Ely, 51, who had worked for the MoD for 33 years, had broken strict rules over acceptance of hospitality by civil servants, the dismissal was inappropriate.

The tribunal ordered the MoD to reinstate Mr Ely from January 1.
