No shocks from Deloitte Touche

3rd November 2000 at 00:00
THE Deloitte Touche report is not expected to add greatly to the hard-hitting conclusions from an internal review already carried out by Bill Morton, the Scottish Qualifications Authority's interim chief executive.

The publication of the independent inquiry's report was delayed from Tuesday until today, to give individuals criticised in it an opportunity to see the comments - but not amend them. The consultants cast a critical eye over the perforance of Ron Tuck, the former chief executive, David Elliot, the former director of awards, and Jack Greig, former head of the operations unit.

The inquiry was confined to the production of this year's results, including problems with data handling and quality control mechanisms for marking. It was not asked to look at the role of ministers, despite media reports earlier this week that it had "exonerated" the former Education Minister.
