Speaking clock – thousands of pounds squandered on costly calls – Kevan Jones MP

Kevan Jones MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Minister, responding to news that the MoD has spent £40,000 calling the speaking clock, said:

“Ministers claim to be taking action to tackle waste but thousands of taxpayer pounds are being squandered on costly calls.

“Personnel who have been made redundant or the public who have heard warnings from senior officers about the Government’s defence cuts will worry that waste is continuing.

“It is essential that a full ban is implemented. Ministers must give the country confidence that waste rather than capabilities is being cut.”
