Adviser behind bungled £250m mask contract hides earnings

The Times reports that Andrew Mills, a former government adviser who brokered the bungled £250 million PPE contract with Ayanda Capital, has used an obscure change in company status to avoid having to disclose details of his earnings.

Mills, who served as an unpaid adviser to the Board of Trade chaired by Liz Truss, secured a deal between the government and the investment company Ayanda Capital for millions of masks.

It was found that millions of those masks worth £155 million were unusable for the intended use because they were supplied with ear loops rather than head straps.
