<b>Audit News:</b> NAO blasts Home Office accounts. By Louise Birkett
In a withering report, the National Audit Office (NAO) has refused to sign off the Home Office's accounts.
The NAO says management failed to heed warnings, muddled figures and showed an inability to complete the basic task of tallying bank statements with records of cash payments and receipts.
The Home Office produced two sets of accounts , but one set said the Home Office overspent by £68 million while another said the Treasury owed it £112 million ' a difference of £180 million.
