The Minister for the Cabinet Office, Francis Maude, has announced that the 'corporate renewal plan' embarked on by private security firm G4S 'represents the right direction of travel' to meet the government's expectations as a customer.

According to the Financial Times (registration, free, required), the announcement gives the company the 'all-clear to win fresh UK Government work', following an earlier ban over the company's overcharging on electronic monitoring contracts.
