Government challenged over Andersen and DeLoreon

Shadow chancellor Matthew Taylor said the information should include what officials were asked and how and why that changed from the view taken under the Conservative government.

He issued a statement in which he said: ‘The issues with Andersen go beyond the settlement of the DeLorean case – it’s about the whole culture of support and links between big business and the Labour party and its possible influence on Government. These issues remain.’

Andersen’s links with Labour have come under renewed scrutiny following the Enron collapse, with particular interest in their report on a PPP-based solution for London Underground.
