Sadiq Khan MP, Labour’s Shadow Justice Secretary, commenting on reports that the Ministry of Justice is to investigate problems with the tagging contracts, said:

“This is a very worrying development and it’s right that there is a full inquiry into any irregularities in the payments associated with the tagging contracts with G4S and Serco. Given that the Ministry of Justice is in the middle of a multi-million pound re-tendering of the contract for electronic tagging, it is particularly important that we get to the bottom of this as soon as possible. That’s why Labour is calling for a freezing of the tendering process while there is a full investigation by the Public Accounts Committee into the value for money offered by the tagging contracts.”
