Steve Reed comments on the Public Account Committee report into the Towns Fund

Steve Reed MP, Labour’s Shadow Communities Secretary, commenting on the Public Account Committee report into the Towns Fund, said:

“This report raises yet more questions about the Government’s misuse of taxpayers’ money.

“Scandal-prone Robert Jenrick deprived more deserving towns of funding so he could funnel it into Conservative target seats ahead of the General Election.

“The Secretary of State must now publish the Accounting Officer’s findings because the public deserve to know if their money was used to benefit the Conservative Party instead of the struggling towns and high streets it was intended for.”
