To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what financial checks his Department made on PPE Medpro Ltd (a) following its referral to the high priority lane and (b) prior to the award of any contract; and what interests were declared by any party in relation to that company.

Due diligence was carried out for all contracts. All offers received a rigorous financial and technical assessment, led by Departmental officials and other Government departments. The Department researched and reported on financial details of companies and background details of company directors and produced reports rating suppliers as red, amber or green.

Departmental records reflect that a link between Baroness Mone and PPE Medpro was clear prior to contracts being awarded.
