I spent two hours this morning discussing the awarding of contracts by the Met Police to a consultancy firm called Impact Plus.
The discussion focused on the role that Sir Ian Blair played in the procurement process and his longstanding friendship with Andy Miller, a director at Impact Plus. Clearly it would be inappropriate for me to write about the information that we looked through and the discussions we had but in the end we agreed to call for a formal investigation into Sir Ian's role.
The Home Secretary will now have to select someone to act as an Investigating Officer. I don't expect that Sir Ian will have a particularly relaxing summer.
