The Good Law Project has revealed for the first time the full list of VIP Test and Trace firms given priority treatment, following a longstanding Freedom of Information battle with Government.
For over a year, the Good Law Project has worked to uncover the identities of the politically-connected companies, all who have links to Conservative Ministers, Peers and Government officials. The preferential treatment they received allowed them access to a priority route to the contracts awarded as part of its £37 billion Test and Trace programme led by Conservative peer Dido Harding.
The Government has refused to give up the names of both the firms and the officials that rolled out the red carpet for them. But following a long-standing Freedom of Information battle, we’ve finally forced the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) – which oversaw the procurement process – to publish their names.
