PwC 'will not pick Britain's new Lords'

Commons Leader Margaret Beckett has denied PricewaterhouseCoopers will help pick Britain's future peers.

PwC was appointed last month to sift through applications to help select members of the House of Lords Appointments Commission which forms a key part of the controversial plans to reform the second chamber.

But Beckett promised MPs that the firm’s Executive Search and Selection arm would not be part of the enoblement process for new members of the Upper Chamber.

It would merely ‘assist in the recruitment of the Chairman and three independent members’ of the commission, she said.
