Financial secretary to the Treasury Jane Kennedy has been summoned to appear
before the Treasury select committee to answer questions on spending within the
chancellor’s departments in 2006-2007.
The hearing, scheduled for 9 January 2008, is likely to be uncomfortable for
Kennedy, who will almost certainly be grilled on whether budget cuts at HM
Revenue & Customs led to loss of the discs with the personal information of
25 million child benefit recipients.
Kennedy will be joined by Angela Eagle, who less than a year ago was a member
of the Treasury Committee herself.
