TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to the GPC files

For immediate release


Responding to the GPC files, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Taxpayers will be shocked by the examples of waste uncovered in this investigation.

“While households are toiling under a record tax burden, politicians and bureaucrats have been splashing our cash on frivolities and five-star travel.

“It’s high-time ministers stood up for hard-working Brits and got a grip on wasteful spending once and for all.”
