"It emerged", says the Mail (no, it was made public ages ago and we reported it) that A4e, or an arm of it, got the contract to design payment-by-results contracts for helping familes with complex needs.

The Star, Sheffield's local paper, has a different take on all this. They say that Lib Dems call Labour's attacks "cynical", given David Blunkett's involvement in the company. Blunkett is indignant. “This is a rather cheap and extremely nasty personal attack on me.”
