BBC clashes with Welsh Audit Office

Audit office refuses request for more information about report

The BBC is preparing to
appeal against a decision by the
Welsh Audit
Office
to deny its request for more information about its report into the
tendering process for Guernsey’s new clinical block.

The broadcaster sought to examine how far political interference caused RG
Falla to pull out of the tender process for the block at the island’s hospital.

Despite a number of questions asked by the BBC under the UK’s
Freedom
of Information Act
, the audit office would not release any further details.

In its defense, the Wales Audit Office said giving out the information would
be likely to harm relations between the UK and Guernsey, could breach the
confidence of the people they interviewed and would discourage co-operation with
auditors.

A response to the appeal is due in 20 days.
