Patricia Hewitt made a ministerial statement on MMC this afternoon.
Her statement includes four comments which were lies.
1. She stated that the MTAS process had been subject to an assessment of quality assurance : it has not
2. She stated that the Computer system had not crashed : it had
3. She stated that she was unable to give a statement as to costs, yet these had been the subject of a Commons question in January
4. She denied that applications had been lost : they had.
In other words, Patsy Hewitt lied to the House of Commons
