THE collapse of MG Rover has cost the taxpayer more than £231 million.

Government figures show the cost of retraining workers was £50 million, while £6.5 million was spent keeping the company going for a week in April this year, while a buyer was sought.

Rover collapsed the same month with debts of £1.4 billion and the loss of 6,000 jobs.
