PM denies lying to Parliament and says leaving dos kept ‘morale’ because they were ‘working hard’
Daily Mail says Boris Johnson today insisted he takes ‘full responsibility’ for Partygate after Sue Gray gave a grim account of drunken antics at the heart of government.
The PM told MPs that the government had ‘learned our lesson’ and he personally was ‘humbled’ after being issued a fine – saying he ‘renewed my apology’.
But Mr Johnson also denied lying to Parliament about the breaches, arguing that leaving dos were needed to keep up ‘morale’ while people were ‘working hard’ and he was ‘proud’ of the efforts of staff.
Saying he wanted to ‘move on’, the premier told the House: ‘I take full responsibility for everything that took place on my watch.’
