The Ministry of Defence recorded losses of more than £800 million in the latest financial year, according to an investigation by the TaxPayers' Alliance. This includes payouts worth £2.5 million to victims of bullying, harassment and discrimination.
Speaking to Sky News, which published the findings, our head of campaigns Elliot Keck said:
"The scale of these losses is utterly indefensible."
"From huge payouts for bullying, to mistaken payments to the wrong supplier, it's clear that something is rotten at the heart of the Ministry of Defence.
"Ministers must ensure that these losses are not repeated."
