No 10 parties inquiry should have more independence, say former civil servants

The Guardian says An inquiry into Downing Street parties that could determine the fate of Boris Johnson’s premiership should be given greater independence from No 10, former civil servants and a union leader have warned.

It comes amid concerns that the prime minister could veto the conclusions of an inquiry by Sue Gray if she recommends that he should be investigated under the ministerial code.

Gray, a senior civil servant, was appointed last month to examine claims that Downing Street officials broke Covid rules by holding a series of parties and events during the pandemic. She replaced her line manager – the cabinet secretary, Simon Case – after it emerged that a Christmas quiz was alleged to have been held in his office.
