7th November- Dame Margaret Hodge
Tue 7 November 2017, 18:30 – 20:00 GMT
Dame Margaret Hodge has spent nearly 40 years in public life in London and the last 22 years of her life representing Barking and Dagenham as the Member of Parliament.
In September 2015 Dame Hodge released her first book ‘Called to Account, How Corporate Bad Behaviour and Government Waste Combine to Cost us Millions’.
The book is about her time as Chair of the Public Accounts Committee. After five years following the taxpayers’ pound, Dame Hodge has written about the 'unconscionable amounts of waste and inefficiency' she observed, in particular on watching 'too many big companies, aided by advisers, banks and lawyers get away without paying their fair share of tax'.
Dame Hodge will share her stories from the frontline and give you her take on the lessons that should be learnt for the future so that all taxpayers get better value for money.
