Conservatives announce plans to cut public sector waste

Cabinet Office

If the Tories come to power in the next election they will make big cuts in
public sector waste and bureaucracy, according to John Redwood, head of the
Conservatives’ new economic policy review.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Redwood said the next Tory
government could save ‘monumentally large sums of money’ that could be recycled
for frontline services or tax cuts.

Redwood said: ‘You may remember that Gordon Brown identified £21bn of waste
and unnecessary expenditure for government. The chancellor is finding it hard to
squeeze all that out but we think it’s something that could be done relatively
quickly in the main – and we could find a bit more on top with the James
review.’
