Now, bedsides me personally having problem getting my head around the paradoxical concept of "nuclear new build decommissioning", if you're wondering what the "costs associated" with his remit will end up being it should be noted that he is basically the Government's PFI man.
You can bet you're bottom dollar those new nuclear power stations that we've not yet decided to get will be paid for on the never never through PFI. Dr Stone's seems to get about quite a bit and has his fingers in a lot of Government pies on that matter. According to a biography, amongst other things he's,
led the advisory team for the Department for Transport and H.M. Treasury on the government's review of the rail industry. He is leading KPMG's financial advisory team on the MoD's Future Strategic Tanker Aircraft deal, which is estimated to have a value in excess of £13billion and is also a lead advisor on the £20billion Military Flying Training Services deal. He has been heavily involved in many major acute hospital transactions, road and IT PFI deals, including the NHS' £3.2bn national IT program and the Department for Work & Pensions Accord deal which is the largest non-military IT procurement in Western Europe.They'll probably make Trident a PFI project next!
