Lib Dems call for audit of Gershon savings

Vincent Cable says government claims of £13.3bn in savings are meaningless without an independent audit

Government claims that £13.3bn of efficiency savings have been made as part
of the Gershon Review must be independently audited, Liberal Democrat shadow
chancellor Vince Cable has demanded.

He said that without this they are ‘completely meaningless’, claiming cuts at
the Department of Work and Pensions in particular ‘have substantially damaged
the service to the public, and the cuts in HMRC have affected the government’s
ability to collect taxes’.
