Hull MP appointed to key government watchdog

Jul 18, 2005

Hull North's Labour MP Diana Johnson has been appointed to the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee.

This prestigious committee examines reports from the National Audit Office on the economy, efficency and effectiveness of government departments and other public bodies. The committee looks at the successes and failures of service delivery on subjects as diverse as dentistry, homelessness and renewable energy.

The committee meets twice weekly when Parliament is sitting and produces around 50 reports per year, twice as many as any other Parliamentary committee.
