PwC partner becomes Home Office non-exec

A partner in PricewaterhouseCoopers has been appointed by the Home Office as
one of three new non-executive directors.

John Heywood will sit on the main Home Office Board and will chair the Home
Office Audit Committee.

The Home Office has had serious problems with its accounts recently, and the
appointment could be seen as an attempt to beef up controls.

Heywood is senior partner and CEO of PwC Eastern Europe and a member of the
Global Leadership team of PwC. He joined the company in 1968 and was admitted as
a partner in 1980, working in audit and business advisory.

Heywood replaces Lord Carter of Coles who, after four and a half years, is
retiring as chairman of the Audit Committee and from the main Home Office Board.
