Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Angela Rayner questions government’s over ‘VIP lane’ for PPE contracts” – below is their description.

Labour were granted an urgent question in the Commons on Thursday about the government’s due diligence over granting PPE contracts to firms via their ‘VIP lane’. This comes after the Guardian revealed Tory peer Michelle Mone secretly received £29m after her husband passed on money from PPE Medpro, a company that was awarded £200m in Covid contracts. Rayner asked Tory MP Neil O’Brien to clarify the government’s due diligence when awarding PPE contracts and whether the government will reveal details of their investigation into missing public money. O’Brien insisted 90 percent of recommendations for Covid contracts were dismissed
