LONDON (Reuters) - The British public spending watchdog will call up independent financial adviser Lazard this month regarding its role on the controversial Royal Mail flotation, a government spokeswoman said on Thursday.

Lazard, which advised the government on the listing, will be called before the Public Accounts Committee on April 30th, the spokeswoman said. Last week a report by the National Audit Office said that the flotation had been underpriced.
