Peer did not declare 13 meetings with Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth fund when he sought permission to work for Bahraini company

A former minister who is to work for a Bahraini investment company has been criticised after he did not declare 13 meetings with its single largest shareholder, the Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth fund, when seeking permission to take the role.

Sir Gerry Grimstone, as he was then, was elevated to the peerage and handed a job in Boris Johnson’s government in March 2020, serving as minister of state for investment until July 2022.
