Quango spending highlights “accountability deficit”

In 2010/11 more than £14bn of Scottish Government money was paid to quangos


FOI requests submitted by Reform Scotland have identified that quangos spend £113m per year on PR, overseas travel, hospitality & entertainment and external consultancy.


Reform Scotland believes all quangos, with the exception of tribunals, should either become fully independent of government, or have their functions transferred to existing government departments.
