UK’s chief scientific adviser has £600,000 of shares in vaccine maker contracted by govt – reports

UK Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Patrick Vallance reportedly holds a bonus of tens of thousands of shares in a pharma giant developing a Covid-19 vaccine for the government. Yet, London says there is no conflict of interest.
