Publication of the Sue Gray Report

The Report by Sue Gray into alleged rule-breaking events at 10 Downing Street during the covid-19 lockdowns was published on Wednesday 25 May 2022. The Prime Minister made a statement to the House about the Report after Prime Minister’s Questions. 

The Government treated the sacrifices of the British people and my constituents in Walsall South with utter contempt. It is abundantly clear that the Prime Minister misled Parliament and the British people. Sue Gray’s report lays bare the rot that has infected 10 Downing Street under this Prime Minister. The Report criticises failures of leadership and judgment in No 10 and the Cabinet Office. It is Boris Johnson’s failure of leadership that has now left his Government paralysed and the British people paying the price.

And in the middle of a cost of living crisis, where there has been no response from the Government, the Prime Minister is more focussed on saving his own skin. Conservative MPs who said they were waiting for this report have now seen how seriously the Prime Minister has demeaned his office. Britain, all of us deserve better. He must go.
