Quite a tough Education Select Committee hearing this morning where we quizzed the Social Mobility Commission about their effectiveness and value.
I asked the Chair if we wouldn't be better scrapping all of these boards, panel and bureaucratic quasi-government organisations and instead putting that money in the our public services. I expected her to make a case for why the Commission adds value, but she actually agreed with me.
There are so many Commissions, Inquiries, Boards and other organisations set up and spending taxpayers money, and I honestly just don't think it's effective. If we put all of that cash in to local government services and education instead we'd do far more to make things better!
