Private Finance Initiative

Volume 462: debated on Wednesday 11 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what discussions his Department has had with the National Audit Office on its draft report on the private finance initiative. (148132)

In line with established practice, the National Audit Office (NAO) offered the Department an early opportunity to comment on the factual accuracy of the NAO's provisional audit findings.

The provisional audit findings were never submitted for signing off by the Accounting Officer at the Department because the NAO subsequently decided that they were not sufficiently conclusive to justify a report to Parliament.
