Another scumbag 'nasty party' member mired in sleaze !!!

    Lord Bethell is the Health Minister responsible for overseeing the award of Covid contracts. His time as Health Minister has been mired in controversy: from failing to declare meetings with firms that won huge Government contracts to using his personal email address to conduct Government business. Good Law Project has a particular interest in the role he played in the controversial award of lucrative contracts to Abingdon Health.

    Last week in Court we argued against the Government's attempts to apply blanket redactions to documents relating to the Abingdon Health contracts. We were successful: an important step towards transparency.

    But the hearing uncovered something more alarming. In sworn evidence, Government admitted that some of Lord Bethell's dealings with Abingdon had been conducted via WhatsApp or text message, and were held only on his private mobile phone. And if that was the case for Abingdon, why not other VIPs too?

    What’s more, in December last year, Lord Bethell was told his mobile phone would be searched for documents relating to this case. Just weeks later, it seems, he ‘replaced’ his phone because, Government lawyers say, it was ‘broken’. They are not now sure it will be possible to retrieve WhatsApp and text messages.

    Lord Bethell has overseen the award of billions of pounds of public contracts. Information revealing how these contracts came to be awarded may now be lost - or have been destroyed.

    During the hearing, the Judge expressed alarm about Government’s failure to preserve evidence and insisted the ‘Order’ he made at the conclusion of the hearing refer to Government’s obligation to preserve relevant documents.

    Our lawyers have written to Government to demand answers. When did Bethell learn his phone would be searched? When did he report it as broken? What attempts were made to save crucial information from his old phone? If not, why not?

    This Government seems allergic to scrutiny: redacting some documents, hiding others from public scrutiny via ‘confidentiality rings’, permitting Ministers to award billions in public money via private as well as official channels, and failing to protect evidence from destruction.

    We are taking action to close this accountability gap.

    Thank you,

    Jo Maugham - Good Law Project

    Vlad... No member of parliament, nor lord is allowed to decide who invests in government contracts the taxpayer has paid for. Lord Bethell (and those who use their own private email accounts) may be doing so to prevent an investigation taking place should anything 'Conservative' in nature take place.

    More about the conservative here...

    Seriously! It was never “lost”, but deliberately rejected, because it didn’t adhere to the Tory gravy-train specifications.

    In 2005 a blueprint was drawn up to fight a coronavirus – then it was ‘lost’

    I want Lord Bethell to take the same walk of shame Dawn just did because hiding emergency pandemic transactions from taxpayers in an England where lying is unlawfully kept classified makes me sick! It's organised mafia because they saw it coming!!
