Government and oil companies ‘too cosy’

Sun 6 Oct 2013

Environmentalists have accused the Government of being too close to oil firms, following a Freedom of Information request that showed two Foreign Office employees were working for Shell.

The staff, acting as government relations advisers, have been formally seconded to the oil giant for periods of between one and two years since May 2010, with their salaries paid by Shell.

Shell said the arrangement built “trust and understanding” between Government and businesses.
