Executive is just waste of money

I was dismayed by the waste of money highlighted by the Northern Ireland Audit Office's report into financial auditing and reporting.

Every year the auditor-general exposes a litany of waste. The issues which the NIAO raises amounts to more than £110m. That includes almost £70m paid out due to fraud and error in our benefits system.

The Department of Agriculture also included £12.1m in its accounts which it needs to pay out in fines for the botch it made of administering EU subsidies. That is simply not acceptable.
