Patel’s
company, KYA Global Ltd, pocketed £90,000 for three months’ work
reviewing the performance of Baroness Scotland’s staff, and a further
£325,000 to oversee its own recommendations.
Mr
Cleverly said: ‘Baroness Scotland has questions to answer. It’s
important the Government is seen to be taking these things seriously.
It’s a sign of respect to our Commonwealth partners.’
