Tory Peer Michelle Mone Admits Error in PPE Firm Denial

Baroness Mone's Admission

Baroness Michelle Mone, a prominent Conservative peer and founder of Ultimo, has admitted to an "oversight" after initially denying her connection to PPE Medpro. This company is currently under investigation by the National Crime Agency (NCA) due to its involvement in securing over £200 million in government contracts through the controversial "VIP lane" during the pandemic, a move endorsed by Baroness Mone.

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has launched breach of contract proceedings regarding the supply of gowns in the 2020 deal. In a candid YouTube documentary funded by PPE Medpro, Baroness Mone expressed remorse for not promptly disclosing her association and acknowledged the government's awareness of her involvement.

Despite facing allegations of lack of transparency, Baroness Mone vehemently claims she was forthcoming with officials, dismissing contradictory statements as "100% false." Furthermore, both she and her husband, Doug Barrowman, contend that a "DHSC negotiator" hinted at a potential resolution if the right sum was offered.

Responding to these claims, Levelling Up Secretary Michael Gove, reportedly involved in the contract process, emphasized that decisions were made through a thorough and impartial procurement process. Gove distanced ministers from individual choices, denied any favoritism, and explained that procurement decisions, although regrettable at times, were a result of operating under immense pressure.

Baroness Michelle Mone, appointed as a peer by Lord David Cameron in 2015, expressed disappointment as a Conservative peer and attributed blame to the government for its handling of the pandemic.
