Commission role for E&Y partner

Nigel Macdonald, a senior partner at Ernst & Young, has been reappointed to the Electricity and Water panels, two specialist panels of the Competition Commission.

The reappointment of MacDonald was one of a number of appointments to the Commission’s reporting panels announced today, by Melanie Johnson, parliamentary under secretary for competition, consumers and markets.

Macdonald has been a senior partner at E&Y since 1976, and has headed a number of teams advising on regulatory issues. He is currently a member of the Financial Reporting Council and the board of the British Standards Institute.

From 1991 to 1995 he served as a member of the Cadbury Committee on corporate governance, while in the mid-1980s he was a member of the Byatt Committee, which advised the Treasury on appropriate accounting policies for Nationalised Industries.

The Competition Commission carries out inquiries into matters referred to it by the other UK competition authorities concerning monopolies, mergers and the economic regulation of utility companies. It also hears appeals against decisions of the director general of Fair Trading.
