Reid blocked freedom of information on Powderject, says watchdog

Guardian 25th May

"The parliamentary ombudsman has expressed deep disappointment at the failure of John Reid, the health secretary, to comply with her rulings on freedom of information.
Ann Abraham said that Mr Reid's department's refusal to disclose information on the way Paul Drayson, the Labour donor recently given a peerage, also obtained a government contract for his pharmaceuticals firm was a "matter of great concern".
