Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

BACKGROUND
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/202...
Then she cut to the chase. What due diligence had been done? How come Medpro had been granted a contract via the VIP fast lane? How come tens of millions of public money ended up in private offshore accounts? Why wouldn’t the government publish its correspondence regarding attempts to reclaim the money? What was going on in the Randox scandal? And why was the government wasting £700,000 a day on storing unusable PPE?

REQUEST
Provide the most recent 10 invoices for storage of unusable PPE.
Provide the most recent 10 invoices for destruction of unusable PPE.
Yours faithfully,

Edward Williams
