Margaret Hodge on A4e and welfare to work providers

There is "still a cloud" hanging over the firm A4e that had a government contract to help people into work, said the chair of the Commons Public Accounts Committee.

Her committee has criticised the government's ability to detect fraud among welfare to work providers, and said arrangements for inspecting contractors were so weak that evidence of potential fraud was not picked up.

Labour MP Margaret Hodge told Carole Walker: "You don't pay a company if they have not done the work."
