Issue No. 2290

The Tories’ deputy party chairman Michael Fallon MP has pocketed more than £27,000 in fees from private healthcare firm Attendo, he has admitted.

Attendo is owned by private equity vulture firm IK Investment.

Attendo has faced accusations of neglect of patients in the privatised nursing homes it operates in Sweden. One in Stockholm was shut after an inspection.

It has very close links with Sweden’s Conservative Party.
