E&Y lobbied US government on behalf of Ford

Firm paid £80,000 for the job

Ernst & Young was paid $160,000
(£80,000) to lobby the US government in the first half of the year on behalf of
motor giant Ford.

This was revealed in a disclosure form, which showed that E&Y lobbied
Congress on things like fuel efficiency standards for cars and trucks.

The firm also lobbied various government departments on healthcare issues,
including prescription drug plans for employees and to promote Ford’s interests
on pension reform.

Under a federal law enacted, lobbyists are required to disclose activities
that could influence members of the executive and legislative branches.
