If government agencies aren’t practising continuous improvement in granular and transparent reporting of how our taxes are actually spend, why don’t they instead reduce the taxes imposed on us?

Every pound of public money mis-managed or squandered on poor policy outcomes is a pound that could have gone on paying off the national debt instead. Why is this statement not on every government agency computer screen saver, in every public sector meeting room, in every public sector manager’s work plan and on every government agency website landing page?

If tax payers already fund government departments to manage public affairs effectively and efficiently, why are politicians so keen to set up ‘special public enquiries’ at an additional cost to the taxpayer?
