It finds that outsourcing waste collection, cleaning, catering and maintenance services has delivered significant savings and benefits to citizens.

Unless you are one of those citizens whose job was outsourced, in which case you were probably shunted out onto a lower wage (or later the minimum wage) and employed by a newly created company with fewer rights and protections. It took 25 years but even the Tories eventually realised this wasn't such a good thing for society, and started to argue in favour of employers paying a living wage (though one redefined to suit their purposes) rather than the minimum wage (which they'd also previously campaigned against).
