‘The Big Nasties’ – Future spending problems for Government laid out by PAC Chair

28 March 2024

Dame Meg Hillier MP today publishes the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Chair’s 8th Annual Report.

The report focuses on three themes of recommended focus for Government:

  • Long-term thinking and investment;
  • Resilience; and
  • Risk management and understanding.

An annex to the report lays out Dame Meg’s analysis of ‘the Big Nasties’ – a non-exhaustive list of the big spending problems for any future Government to solve, and the key costs attached.

The report is underpinned both by the cross-party Committee’s scrutiny work, and Dame Meg’s observations from thirteen years serving on the PAC.
