High Court VIP Lane ruling: Conservatives treated pandemic as a cash cow

Responding to today’s High Court ruling that the Government’s use of the ‘VIP Lane’ to award PPE contracts was unlawful, Liberal Democrat Health Spokesperson Daisy Cooper MP said: “This damning judgment confirms what the public already suspected. Not only did the Conservatives give their mates privileged access to lucrative Covid contracts, they did it unlawfully.

“The Tory party treated a pandemic as a cash cow for their friends and donors. Once again, it’s a case of one rule for Tory Ministers and their cronies and another for everyone else.”
