Tories boosted by free help from leading firms

PwC, KPMG and Deloitte provide complimentary services collectively worth hundreds of thousands of pounds to political party in pole position to be elected

Leading firms are providing services which would have cost almost £450,000
for free to the Conservative party, seen as strong favourites to win the general
election.

Since the start of 2008, PricewaterhouseCoopers, KPMG have either provided
staff or technical help to the Tories worth £292,697.68 and £106,103
respectively, the Independent reported.

Ernst & Young is set to provide a consultant to the Tory Party at a cost
of £50,000 from August.

The news comes as firms continue to benefit from lucrative public sector
work. Valuations of banks bailed out by the government have become a welcome
revenue stream for some firms in recent months.
