All public accounts should be open to scrutiny by the public.

At the moment a lot of public expenditure is hidden by 'Commercial in Confidence' clauses imposed by the private sector companies hired to deliver public services.

This is done to precvent the public knowing where their money is actually going.

Why is this idea important?

I think we need to be more honest about about which companies are receiving taxpayers' money, what they are delivering for that money, who sits on their boards and which political parties they donate to.
