http://www.nao.org.uk/keep-in-touch/our-surveys/consultation-code-audit-practice/

“A number of audit firms responding to the consultation highlighted the importance of the auditor being able to determine the extent of work required to fulfil their statutory responsibilities and that their judgement on this should not be subject to, or fettered by, fee restrictions or other constraints. We agree with this view and believe that the Code is clear on this important point.” Does the Audit Committee agree with the National Audit Office?
