Pickles goes cold on a 'mutual' Audit Commission

Mp accuses local government ministers of being "non committal" on the prospect of making the Audit Commission a mutual

THE GOVERMENT has been accused of losing interest in the idea of the audit practice inside the Audit Commission becoming a mutual.

Labour MP Andrew Love accused local governement minister Eric Pickles of offering “not much more than talk” on the issue, according to Public Finance magazine.

Love is reported claiming that Pickle has been “very non-committal” on the prospect of mutualisation.

Eurgene Sullivan, the  Audit Commission’s chief executive, is reported saying that mutualisation is being taken seriously as an option for the organisation.

Negotiations are currently underway on the future of the commission. Eric Pickles announced in August that the commission was to be scrapped.
