PAC report is yet another reminder of Capita’s appalling failure to deliver recruitment to the British Army – Griffith

Nia Griffith MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary, commenting on the Public Accounts Committee’s report on Army recruitment, said:

“This is yet another reminder of Capita’s appalling failure to deliver recruitment to the British Army and the Government’s complete refusal to manage the contract properly.

“The number of trained personnel in the Army has fallen in every year since this disastrous contract with Capita was signed in 2012. Conservative Ministers have repeatedly refused to take any action to rectify this because of their ideological obsession with privatisation.

“The next Labour government will scrap this failing contract and bring the service back in house to be delivered by Army personnel themselves.”
