Andersen denies it is 'close' to government
Andersen has today hit back at claims the firm is 'unusually close to the Labour party' after issuing a brief statement on its work for the UK government.
Liberal Democrat shadow chancellor Matthew Taylor has demanded a full-scale inquiry into New Labour’s links with Enron and Andersen.
However, the government poured cold water over Taylor’s suggestions, prior to the firm echoing these sentiments.
The firm’s statement read: ‘Andersen does a relatively small amount of government work compared to our competitors. The suggestion that we are unusually close to the Labour party – or any political party – is unfounded.’
