    Start of a sentence

    I'm from Holland and I discussed the following sentence with my teacher. Could you please give your opinion about it? (We're supposed to use British English.

    Made clear is now that privatisation implies risks.

    or

    Made clear is now, privatisation implies risks.

    or

    ...?

    Is this correct English? So not, what's wrong with it?
    Maybe you have a nice solution for saying the same thing?

    I hope I posted this in the right topic. I'm new on the forum.

    Best regards,

    Try: "It has now been made clear that privatisation implies risk".

    Re: Start of a sentence

    ok, sounds good, however i'm not sure if it fits in the context.

    I actually try to refer with this sentence to a previous chapter in the report. I try to say: thoroughly explained to the reader is in the previous chapter... etc. so it refers to the previous chapter and not to a previous sentence of alinea.

    I guess it's not a problem.

    Thanks for you help!

    Best regards,
