Public Accounts Committee
Report published 11 March 2016. Government response published 26 May 2016.
Whistleblowing is an important source of intelligence to help government identify wrongdoing and risks to public service delivery.
The Committee looked at whistleblowing in March and May 2014, in response to high-profile cases including out of hours GP services and tax avoidance, and concluded that a lack of cross-government leadership on whistleblowing had resulted in an inconsistent approach across departments.
The Committee considered it essential that employees have trust in the system for handling whistleblowers; confidence that they will be taken seriously; and protected and supported by their organisations if they blow the whistle.
This inquiry examines progress in how government deals with whistleblowers to give better protection to them and to ensure the information they highlight is used properly.
