PFI HospitalsPosted by Sheila Oliver Sun, October 26, 2014 07:09:54

Dear Mr Bradshaw

Further to my letter last night about the Queen Elizabeth Hospital records in Birmingham, which are not retained by the Hospital or Local Government, such records are solely retained by the Balfour Beatty Consortium.

It beggars belief the Hospital does not retain such records as required under the Construction Design Management (CDM) Law.

How many other PFI or indeed PPP Project are missing information nationwide?.

The National Debt does NOT include PFI or PPP contracts, hence the true extent of the National Debt is not known.

I call upon my MP to write to the Chancellor, George Osbourne, to ask him to explain why the PFI/PPP assets and debt are NOT included in his annual accounts or indeed the national debt.

In the event the Queen Elizabeth do not retain any records on the premises, it would automatically follow that the hospital is operating in a legal Vvoid.

I would envisage the PFI/PPP deb to be running at several billion pounds.

I have no idea how many PFI/PPP Projects have been completed in the last decade, but there is a serious oversight problem with all of them.

I fully appreciate this national debt problem is outside your remit but, as you are aware, there has been a number of PFI Projects in Exeter. Hence, such matters are your remit.

It would automatically follow that the UK Treasury is unable to guarantee Transparency, Accountability or Security (TAS) of its funding. The TAS lights at the Treasury are not seen to be working.

For your information action and files.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield.
