QLTR’s accounts a ‘total shambles’: Auditor General

The Auditor General for Scotland, Robert Black, reported to the Scottish Parliament’s Public Audit Committee on 22 April 2009 that the accounts of the Queen’s and Lord Treasurer’s Remembrancer were “a total shambles”.

The Scotsman for 23 April reported that annual accounts were submitted late from 2006 to 2008, and that the auditors were critical of a “lack of clear instruction” and “considerable delay”.

The Crown Office, under whose umbrella the QLTR shelters, said that the next set of accounts would be produced on time.  Watch this space.
