The Sunday Times – Vennells given CBE despite Horizon fears

The Sunday Times reports that Paula Vennells, Post Office chief executive from 2012 to 2019, was handed a CBE by Theresa May’s government despite concerns raised on the honours committee over the scandal. Ms Vennells said earlier this week she would hand back her honour following the backlash.

The paper says at least one member of the main honours committee questioned the wisdom of the honour in 2018. The article includes a denial from the chair of the honours sub-committee that he “brushed aside” concerns, and an unnamed source says assurances were received from civil servants about her fitness for the award.
