A MAJOR investigation has discovered that £5.6 billion in public cash has been blown on a wide range of outrageous projects.
The investigation comes as Chancellor Rishi Sunak prepares to outline a plan for taking back control of the nation’s finances after the hundreds of billions spent tackling the Covid-19 crisis.
The exact waste figure reported by the DailyMail was £5,577,988,036.64.
The DailyMail exposed how –
Meg Hillier, chairman of the public accounts committee, said, ‘There is no magic money pot, this is taxpayers’ money that’s being spent at a time when the low-paid and hard-working people have seen a massive cut in income or lost their livelihood.
‘It’s important that everyone responsible for the management of taxpayers’ money is held to account and the Daily Mail’s investigation is a vital part of that accountability. All public servants need to remember whose money it is and be careful about their spending.
‘Meals in luxury restaurants are not necessary and not on when so many people are relying on food banks.’
