Dominic Raab’s department wasted ‘staggering’ £238m on array of botched projects last year
The Independent says Dominic Raab’s department wasted a “staggering” £28m last year, according to new figures – an increase of 14 times on the year before.
Labour called for an urgent National Audit Office investigation into the losses at the Ministry of Justice, which were driven by overspends worth tens of millions of pounds on an array of ill-advised or bungled projects.
The biggest-ticket item driving up the level of waste was £98.2m on a new case management system for electronic tagging of criminals – which was then scrapped before it could be used.
