A senior civil servant, Sue Gray, has been tasked with investigating alleged breaches of COVID-19 restrictions within 10 Downing Street.

Reportedly a number of parties and social events were held behind closed doors during periods of the strictest public health measures the UK had seen for centuries.

The Prime Minister has had pressure put on him from across Parliament including by the SNP’s Westminster leader, Ian Blackford. Mr Blackford said the PM is “getting away with it” if the report isn’t published in full.

We currently know that:

  • The Prime Minister has recieved a copy of the report
  • At 3.30 PM the Prime Minister will address Parliament to reveal the findings of the reports (this will be followed by questions from the house)
  • ITV’s political editor, Paul Brand, responsible for the Downing St Parties story, has revealed that the report has some missing sections to comply with requests by The Metropolitan Police not to prejudice their investigation.
  • This afternoon the report will be made available in The House of Commons Library and will also be published online at gov.uk

 

More as the story develops.
