'Whistle-blowing is crucial' - Margaret Hodge MP
The Commons Public Accounts Committee, headed by Labour MP Margaret Hodge, says whistle-blowers are often treated badly and more needs to be done to encourage the practice.
Its report called for whistle-blowers to be offered legal and counselling services and for "swift sanctions" to be imposed on staff who victimise them.
Ms Hodge said whistle-blowing was "crucial" and had to "matter right up to the top of an organisation."
