Stories involving Edward Leigh

The current chairman of the Public Accounts Committee has issued a stark recommendation that 'massive efficiency savings and job cuts on the bureaucracy' of the public sector must be imposed, as he prepares to leave his post.


The defence budget is "fundamentally unaffordable," the chair of the Public Accounts Committee has warned. The report shows there could be an £80bn hole in the MoD budget, requiring equipment programmes to be cancelled.


Plans to help people who were struggling with debt problems have been a "complete failure", MPs have said. In a new report the Public Accounts Committee criticised the government's record and called for urgent reform.


Labour 'mutiny' over Woolas

Sources close to Ed Miliband have told PoliticsHome that the Labour party will not put anyone forward to replace Phil Woolas until his legal process has finished. However, Labour sources deny the leader is softening his stand on the issue, but the message will reassure fractious backbenchers.
