A committee of MPs and the spending watchdog are carrying out separate inquiries into the closure of Kids Company. The Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee will look into the charity's relationship with successive UK governments. It said there were "serious questions about the financial management and leadership of the charity and the degree of sustained and substantial support it had received from government ministers". Meanwhile, the National Audit Office is to examine the government's grounds for providing funding to the charity and how the grants were monitored by government. A spokesman for the NAO said it was not yet clear how long the inquiry would take, but he expected a report before Christmas.
