Tory donor's firm paid £11m to deliver PPE now gets £4.5m to destroy it
A Tory donor’s firm that was paid £11million to deliver PPE is now getting £4.5million to incinerate it. Clipper Logistics was founded by Ferrari-driving Steve Parkin who has a jet and a helicopter. He gave £730,000 to the Conservatives and remains a shareholder after selling Clipper. Gowns, goggles and surgical gloves will be incinerated. Two years ago Clipper – one of the UK’s leading storage and delivery groups – received £11million of taxpayer cash to deliver PPE.
