To ask the Minister for Regional Development (i) whether Ernst & Young carried out any work, on an ex gratia basis, between July 2009 and July 2010 for, or in relation to, Northern Ireland Water; (ii) for whom was any such work carried out; (iii) who was the recipient of the work; and (iv) who instructed the work to be carried out.

Revised Answer:
The information below replaces my previous answer on 8 July 2013, which advised that Ernst & Young had undertaken work on an ex gratia basis for or in relation to Northern Ireland Water (NIW). This was subsequently found to be incorrect.
I have been advised by NIW that it has no record of any work being carried out by Ernst & Young on an ex gratia basis between July 2009 and July 2010 at NIW’s request
