The Counter Fraud Taskforce interim report outlines early successes in the Government’s drive to fight fraud against the public purse.  

The Taskforce has taken a fresh approach; by overseeing a series of pilots to show how quickly fraud could be reduced if we focus on delivery rather than strategy. The pilots have already saved £12 million and expect to save £1.5 billion over the next 2 - 4 years as they are rolled out more widely.
