How to spend £7bn


Ideal Government has some edited highlights of the Public Accounts Committee’s grilling of the Director of Transformational Government. (In case you’re wondering, ‘Transformational Government’ is the name given to the master plan to join up all our records and share the information contained in them).

Some beer-mat calculations of our own reveal that the £7bn apparently required to staff Transformational Government could usefully plug the shortage of 2,000 social workers, 5,000 midwives and 5,000 health visitors. It could also supply computer equipment to every child in England – and still leave £4bn in loose change.
