The Committee of Public Accounts Committee holds an evidence session on the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills’ free face-to-face advice for people struggling with debt. Watch live from 4.30pm.
This session will be followed by a session on the National Audit Office Resources Estimate 2010-11.
The Committee of Public Accounts is appointed by the House of Commons to examine "the accounts showing the appropriation of the sums granted by Parliament to meet the public expenditure, and of such other accounts laid before Parliament as the Committee may think fit".
The Committee does not consider the formulation or merits of policy (which fall within the scope of departmental select commitees); rather it focuses on value-for-money criteria which are based on economy, effectiveness and efficency.
