"Sir Peter Spencer and the £500m Chinook “gold standard cock-up”.

Sir Peter Spencer KCB was appointed Chief Executive of Action for M.E. on 30 April 2007. Prior to that he was Chief of Defence Procurement of the MOD, from May 2003.

Further details of Sir Peter’s career at the Ministry of Defence emerged yesterday. The coverage is not flattering, as newspaper headlines suggest:

Guardian, Wednesday June 4 2008.

“£500m ‘wasted’ on Chinooks that have never flown”, Michael Evans, Defence Editor, The Times June 4, 2008.
