Dr Andrew Crawford named by senior civil servant during PAC session

A senior civil servant has said he believes a DUP special adviser exerted influence in relation to the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme.

Dr Andrew McCormick told Stormont's Public Accounts Committee (PAC) that he understood Dr Andrew Crawford was the adviser who influenced a decision to keep the scheme open.

He told the committee that he had no direct evidence of this.

Dr Crawford was Arlene Foster's adviser when she was enterprise minister.
