Campaigners call for stricter award regulations on public sector security contracts

Campaigners are calling for security companies, such as G4S and Serco, which are under investigation for fraud, to be barred from being awarded public sector contracts.

The Howard League, a prison charity for Penal Reform, criticised ministers for considering giving these multinationals under investigation, new contracts.

Chief executive Frances Crook said: “The delivery of justice is one of the most precious public services and we must, as a nation, adhere to the highest standards of probity.”

“The dossier compiled by the Howard League is a litany of failure by private companies,” Ms Crook added.

The allegations will be sent to the Public Accounts Committee which investigated government outsourced contracts earlier this year.
