The oversight of public finances is one of the most important roles Parliament performs on behalf of our citizens and taxpayers. As we pay our taxes we all want to be confident that government spends the money properly and with proper regard to value for money. It is my role as a member of parliament and as Chair of the UK Committee of Public Accounts to scrutinise the way government operates and to hold it to account where performance falls short. Where our work identifies waste, inefficiency or ineffectiveness, we make recommendations for improvement.
