Treasury appoints B&B valuer

The Treasury has appointed PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) valuation expert Peter Clokey as independent valuer for the Bradford & Bingley compensation scheme. Shares in the mortgage lender were transferred into temporary public ownership last September as it neared collapse. Clokey will now lead a PwC team to determine the value of any compensation payable to shareholders of Bradford & Bingley.
