HIPs failure leaves taxpayers £7m bill

The government's failed attempt to introduce Home Information Packs (HIPs) has cost taxpayers more than £7 million, it can be revealed.

Critics of the controversial scheme attacked the Government as "wasteful, incompetent and irresponsible" following the admission that its advertising campaign to promote the packs had cost £895,000, pushing the total spend on HIPs to £7.4 million.
