Dame Margaret Hodge gave a special talk and book signing event on Wednesday 5 October at City lit

As Chair of the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee from 2010- 2015 Rt Hon Dame Margaret Hodge DBE MP has been both the scourge of waste and inefficiency by successive governments.

Dame Hodge spoke about her life and career at a special event which included a talk and signing of her book 'Called To Account' - a fascinating journey inside the NHS, the BBC and defence as well as Amazon, Starbucks and G4S by the woman who spent five years as the nation's watchdog of how much of the money needed for public services is misspent, while too many corporate giants get away without paying their fair share.
