Closed petition Launch an independent Public Inquiry into Government & NHS Covid-19 spending

There should be a fully independent Public Inquiry into Government & NHS spending on Covid-19, including Test & Trace, Vaccines, Consultancy & PPE.

Any personal connections between MPs and companies awarded contracts must be fully investigated

More details

The Government's use of a "VIP" fast track for suppliers of Covid personal protective equipment (PPE), some of which had connections to ministers and officials, was ruled unlawful by the High Court. Transparency International raised concerns that 20% of covid-19 contracts raised one or more red flags for possible corruption.

If public money has been wasted this must be fully investigated & measures put in place to ensure it never happens again. The inquiry should be led by specialist forensic auditors.
