Sheldon – rescued when he collapsed from a heart attack in St James’ Park by Olympic swimmer Duncan Goodhew – said Sir JohnBourne must be able to follow public money.
He called on the government to use the remaining stages of thepassage of the government Resources and Accounts Bill throughParliament to put matters right.
And he reiterated concerns ‘that the Bill represented a wastedopportunity to bring the powers of the C&AG and the NAO in linewith modern government’.

The Bill is due to be considered in the Lords.
