Liberal Democratic Party: Government not honest about what savings it can make – Baker

Press Release   •   Dec 17, 2009 10:12 GMT

"We cannot trust Labour when they tell us how they will save money," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Transport Secretary.

Commenting on today’s NAO report, which claims that the Department for Transport and the Home Office have overstated the amount of money they can save, Norman Baker said:

“With more than half the money the Department for Transport claims it can save either overstated or uncertain, it is clear the Government has not been honest about what savings it can make.

“If we cannot trust Labour when they tell us how they will save money, how can we trust any claim they make about how they will spend it?”
