Party Gate - Commons Privileges Committee Report

15 Jun 2023

Boris Johnson deliberately misled parliament over whether COVID lockdown rules were broken in No 10.

The committee has boiled down its list of transgressions to five key points:

1 - Deliberately misleading the House

2 - Deliberately misleading the committee

3 - Breaching confidence

4 - Impugning the committee and thereby undermining the democratic process of the House

5 - Being complicit in the campaign of abuse and attempted intimidation of the committee

Liberal Democrat Perspective Parlimentary Candidate David Kendall said: 'The report on former Prime Minister Boris Johnston's conduct before the House of Commons is utterly damning. While the people of Brentwood suffered, Tories partied. One question remains: what did our MP know, and when, as Johnson's parliamentary private secretary at the time? We expect clear and unequivocal answers- unlike those of his former boss, Mr Johnson."
