TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to Hunt’s EDI crackdown plan

For immediate release


Responding to reports that the chancellor plans to crackdown on wasteful EDI spending in Whitehall, Tom Ryan, policy analyst of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Taxpayers are fed up of funding public sector non-jobs.

“But with reductions in taxpayer-funded EDI roles promised before, the proof will be in the pudding. 

“The chancellor should be tenacious in identifying where savings can be made.”
