Responding to today's Audit Commission report on local government fraud, Shadow environment secretary, Jack Straw said: 'Local councils must do everything to prevent, and to detect fraud and corruption.

'But this report underlines our increasing evidence that it is in the unelected state of quangos, agencies and central government that fraud, corruption and serious mismanagement has taken off. Indeed, our estimates show that for every £1 of fraud, corruption and waste through serious management in local government, £60 is lost in quangos, agencies and central government.'
