Festival of Politics - In Conversation with Dame Margaret Hodge MP

Recorded at the Festival of Politics in 2018.

Despite boasting a 40-year political career in local and national government, it could be argued that Dame Margaret Hodge really came to public prominence in 2010 as the fearsome Chair of the Public Accounts Committee overseeing £750 billion of public expenditure annually.  Join the Presiding Officer and Dame Margaret Hodge to discuss her book, Called to Account; How Corporate Bad Behaviour and Government Waste Combine to Cost Us Millions, and her Committee’s dogged pursuit of transparency and accountability in grilling everyone from corporate giants Amazon, Starbucks and Google to civil servants and HMRC.
