Verify failure NAO report – Jo Platt responds

Jo Platt MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, responding to the NAO’s report on the failure of Verify, said:

“Underperforming and over budget, Verify’s failure is just one in a long list of costly flagship IT projects that this government has botched and which the public are paying for.

“The decision to abandon Verify to the private sector is absolutely emblematic of the government’s failure to take responsibility and deliver digital government in the public interest.”
