Boris Johnson set to apologise to MPs over lockdown fine
BBC News says Boris Johnson is expected to apologise to MPs after being fined for breaking lockdown rules – as he argues there are more important issues to focus on.
The prime minister is set to make his first statement to Parliament since being fined by police for a June 2020 breach.
Opposition parties are expected to try and censure the prime minister in the coming days amid claims he lied to MPs.
But Grant Shapps said the PM did not “knowingly” mislead Parliament.
“When the PM spoke in Parliament he didn’t knowingly appreciate that stepping into the room there was going to be something which breached the rules,” Mr Shapps said.
“It was wrong, he’s apologised, he’s accepted the fixed penalty notice and we move on.”
