Margaret Hodge MP, chair of the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee has commented on the news that the National Audit Office believes that police forces are wasting money over equipment purchases.
It is unbelievable that something as simple as a high-visibility jacket has 20 different specifications, with associated prices that differ by as much as £80.
Instead of focusing money on tackling crime, police forces are wasting resources disagreeing over how many pockets they should have on their uniforms.
