Taxpayers' money up in flames as money wasted on dodgy PPE highlighted. Incompetence of Johnson and his Government shown up again.
The Public Accounts Committee's latest report shows that there was a colossal waste of taxpayers' money on unusable personal protective equipent (PPE) in the NHS. Liberal Democrats Health and Social Care spokesperson Daisy Cooper MP said:
"This report is further evidence of Boris Johnson's dire track record during the pandemic.
"Not only has his Conservative Government wasted billions of pounds on useless PPE, taxpayers will now have to see their money literally go up in flames as that PPE is burned.
"Even worse, Ministers have spent millions more storing this unusable PPE, only now, much later to realise they can't use it.
"Hard working families, who are struggling to make ends meet, will be outraged that the Conservatives have squandered their money for no other reason than their sheer incompetence. Taxpayers deserve an explanation."
