 Matt Hancock, the former health secretary, failed to notify his officials about private messages he exchanged with disgraced Conservative MP Owen Paterson, a healthcare firm’s paid lobbyist, an official watchdog has disclosed.

In a critical report, the National Audit Office (NAO) concluded that the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) did not record properly why it awarded contracts worth nearly £500m to the healthcare firm, Randox.

The NAO also reported that Hancock’s then department failed to declare four meetings its ministers held with Randox as it was required to do under transparency rules. No minutes of six meetings between Randox and ministers were kept.

In a report published on Thursday, the NAO ruled that the gaps in this record-keeping meant it could not certify positively that the contracts had been awarded correctly.

- when enough people make false promises, words stop meaning anything. Then there are no more answers, only better and better lies. -
