    I don’t see the point of having the DWP Select Committee as the Tories ignore all their findings. Once they got into in power, they (the Tories) seem untouchable and answer to no one, .. God help us all .. & that is someone they will answer to..

      The committee holds the government to account by making those findings that you say are pointless.
      How do you think we should make the Coalition accountable, then – within practical limits?
