Former CBI director general speaks out over non-exec role at software firm

Sir Digby Jones, the former director general of the CBI, has defended himself
over his association with iSoft and the alleged accounting irregularities
there. 

Sir Digby was a NED at iSoft for five years.

In an interview with the
Sunday
Telegraph,
Jones said: ‘There is a limit to what a non-executive can
know. They have to rely on what advisers tell them and what the executive team
tells them. It is important that people understand this.’

iSoft is being investigated by both the Financial Services Authority and the
AIDB.
