Setting up a watchdog to sanity check where the budget cuts are taking place, to ensure it hits unnecessary expenditure first, not headcounts and classes. 

Why is this idea important?

The goverment should be keeping a close eye on where the waste is being cut. 

I recently came across a story that Sutton Coldfield College are cutting classes and teaching posts, yet they are keeping the fleet of promotional cars, the facelift of the building and fresh flower arrangements delivered weekly.  Surely this is happening elsewhere and should be sanity checked before needless reductions in headcounts take place.
