Departmental Finance Directors

Volume 448: debated on Wednesday 28 June 2006

To ask the Leader of the House what the (a) name, (b) professional and academic qualifications and (c) relevant experience are of the finance director of the Privy Council Office. (80082)

HM Treasury and the National Audit Office have agreed that the Privy Council Office, which is a small Department, need not have a professionally qualified finance director. Financial management falls within the responsibilities of the director of corporate services, with professional support from a chartered accountant. A second qualified accountant (FCCA) is a non-executive member of the Department’s Audit and Risk Committee.
