A number of Paul's businesses went into administration in late 2015 as a result of the steel industry crisis and his London-based Caparo Group, which includes property interests, saw its assets sink from £77m to £49.6m. One of Labour’s biggest donors in the Gordon Brown years, Indian-born Paul, 86, owns property in Buckinghamshire and Switzerland, plus three UK hotels: the Osborne in Torquay, the Bignell Park in Bicester and the White Hart in Lincoln.
