Evidence given by A4e Whistle-blowers held in private

Evidence given by A4e Whistle-blowers held in private

A Public Accounts Committee which took place yesterday investigating fraud within Welfare to Work providers took place behind closed doors despite being a public hearing. 

Despite heated debate between Labour and Conservatives the Public Accounts Committee decided that the allegations were so serious that they should be kept private until properly investigated.

The two sessions of evidence in which Whistle –blowers at A4e gave evidence to the Public Accounts Committee is now expected to be handed to the police.  Robert Deveruex, permanent secretary at the Department of Work and Pensions, who sat in on the session said the evidence “did indeed sound damning”.
