Re the £2.6 million fiasco, I was once the Civil servant involved with the payments to Contractors. In my day, all payments were effected by cheque, via me, direct to the Contractor, by which method a mistake could not have occurred.
I know that computer transactions are now the norm but large interim payments, normally monthly, could still be made by cheque with little difficulty.
