HC Deb 29 January 1990 vol 166 c64W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the fees paid to each of the accountancy firms connected with the water privatisation; and how much money has been paid to firms criticised by the Department of Trade and Industry or the disciplinary committees of the accountancy profession.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

It is not our policy to comment on individual contracts. The full costs of privatisation will be reported to Parliament in due course in the normal way.
