The 2018 Policy & Politics Annual Lecture will be given by Right Honourable Dame Margaret Hodge on 'Calling Government to Account: How corporate bad behaviour and government waste combine to cost us millions'.

Based on her term as Chair of the Public Accounts Committee, Margaret Hodge will horrify and amaze us with her jaw-dropping account of tax avoidance and wasted money by successive governments: revelations which will shock - and appeal - right across the political spectrum.
