Jon Trickett MP, Labour's Shadow Cabinet Office Minister, responding to the Government’s announcement on quangos, said:
"This so-called clampdown is not what it seems.
“The true picture of David Cameron’s Government is of a failed economic plan which has delivered a double-dip recession and £150 billion more borrowing than they planned. Far from cutting bureaucracy they’ve launched an unwanted and wasteful upheaval of the NHS, creating a new NHS Commissioning Board, which David Cameron has been warned “could turn into the greatest quango in the sky” while the NHS is losing nurses at a rate of 200 per month.
“This out of touch Tory-led Government's failures are costing this country dear.”
