Whilst looking at various elements of the Ministry of Defence, the PAC called forth the MOD’s Trevor Woolly for questioning. The rest is an actual verbatim exchange.

MR RICHARD BACON MP (CON, S. NORFOLK): Mr Woolly, are you a chartered account?
MR WOOLLY: I am not.
BURTON: Are you a qualified financial person of any kind? Do you have any financial qualifications?
WOOLLY: I do not have financial qualifications
BURTON: What is your job?
WOOLLY: I am the finance director of the Ministry of Defence.

What a classic exchange!
