Capita’s Aldridge Resigns for Spurious Reasons

“There have been suggestions that this loan has resulted in the group being awarded government contracts. This is entirely spurious.” CEOs don’t resign for spurious reasons. This PQ was tabled yesterday. The answer will be illuminating.

Mr Stewart Jackson (Peterborough): To ask the Prime Minister, if he will list meetings his Adviser on Government Relations has had with (a) Capita, (b) organisations acting on behalf of Capita and (c) Mr Rod Aldridge in the last 18 months; what the purpose of the meeting was in each case; and if he will make a statement.

N.B. Happy snappers – newspaper picture desks are willing to pay for a picture of Ruth Turner and Rod Aldridge together, even if it is entirely spurious.
