Abstract

In Called To Account: How Corporate Bad Behaviour and Government Waste Combine To Cost Us Millions, Margaret Hodge reflects on her years as the chair of the Public Accounts Committee between 2010 and 2015, tasked with scrutinising the use of public money. Covering such topics as the non-payment of corporation tax and the misuse of public funds in pay-offs and bonuses, this book indicates how greater transparency and accountability can be achieved and may go some way to restoring faith in our political representatives, writes Chris Harmer.
