Partygate: Cabinet minister compares Boris Johnson’s fine to parking penalty – as PM prepares to face MPs
Sky News says a cabinet minister has likened Boris Johnson’s lockdown fixed penalty to a parking fine – ahead of the prime minister facing MPs for the first time since the punishment was issued.
Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis also told Sky News’ Kay Burley that Mr Johnson had not misled parliament when he initially declared that no rules had been broken – arguing that he was saying what he believed to be true at the time.
Police have been investigating 12 events in Downing Street and Whitehall during 2020 and 2021 when lockdown rules were alleged to have been broken and so far more than 50 fines have been announced.
