government to clarify its links with Andersen Consulting

The Liberal Democrats this week called on the government to clarify its links with Andersen Consulting, the international accounting firm caught up in the Enron scandal. Andersen is advising the government on Railtrack, the London Underground public-privatepartnership, BNFL, the Belfast Port public private partnership, hospital and school private finance initiative schemes, National Air Traffic Services and the sale of the Millennium Dome. It was banned from working on government contracts until 1997 after its involvement in the accounting scandal that embroiled car manufacturer DeLorean in the mid-1980s.
