Tory minister caught leaking document to Wonga whitewashes his part in sponsorship deal from his website

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Guilty conscience, is it?

A Tory minister has scrubbed evidence of a deal he brokered between Wonga and his local football team from his website after he was caughtleaking a sensitive committee report on pay-day-lenders to the company.

Justin Tomlinson MP, who was a member of the Public Accounts Committee in 2013, said his “judgement had been clouded” when he passed the confidential report about regulating consumer credit to controversial lenders.

He brokered a deal worth £30,000 for Wonga to sponsor his local football team, and accepted donations of £30,218 from the club’s chairman since 2014.

There is no suggestion of any wrongdoing and the chairman, Jez Webb, said the similarity in the amounts is coincidental.

But Mr Tomlinson has now deleted references to Wonga from the article about the sponsorship deal on his website.
