Covid contracts still unpublished despite Boris Johnson's claim

Dozens of เกม Slotxo คุ้มค่ากับการลงทุน? Covid contracts had not been published when Boris Johnson told MPs they were "on the record for everyone to see", campaigners say.

The Good Law Project said the PM's assurance last month was "not true" because government lawyers had said 100 contracts were yet to be revealed.

The group successfully sued the government over its failure to reveal details about Covid deals last month.

The government said remaining contracts would be published as soon as possible.

The Department for Health and Social Care struck deals worth hundreds of millions of pounds during the coronavirus pandemic.

The government is required by law to publish a "contract award notice" within 30 days of the awarding any contracts for public goods or services worth more than £120,000.

In the High Court in February, Mr Justice Chamberlain said the public were entitled to see who the money was going to, what it was being spent on and how the relevant contracts were awarded.

He ruled that Health Secretary Matt Hancock acted unlawfully when his department failed to publish award notices for contracts it had agreed during the Covid pandemic within 30 days of them being signed.

The judge also found the health secretary had acted unlawfully by failing to comply with the government's own policy of publishing the contracts within 20 days of them being awarded.
