Number 10 has made some interesting arrangements for the launch of the Sainsbury review this morning. It starts with Gordon Brown, David Sainsbury and Ian Pearson answering questions from a hand-picked group, mainly venture capital folk as far as we can tell. Then the Prime Minister goes off and the hacks are allowed to quiz the junior staff. It's a recipe that's bound to irritate the press pack.

And it has left me with a question as I sit down to start reading the review. Will it tell us what has actually happened to the millions that the government has entrusted to the VCs at Capital Dynamics to fund hi-tech firms?
