Labor wasting billions on consultants

It has been revealed today that since Labor came to office in late 2007, the Government have spent $2,170,180,096 on 17,736 consultantancy contracts. The Health budget is being eaten into by a massive $208 million spent on consultants. The Canberra Times reported that ''However, the contracts also encroach into areas that were traditionally the responsibility of public servants, such as policy advice and contract administration''.
With both sides needing to look for spending cuts, this would be an ideal area.
