Downing Street parties: No taxpayers’ money was spent on food or drink consumed at partygate events being probed, No 10 insists

Sky News says No taxpayers’ money was spent on food or drink consumed at Downing Street events being probed by the Metropolitan Police as part of its “partygate” inquiry, the government has insisted.

The denials came from Cabinet Office minister Michael Ellis as it was revealed the police questionnaire sent to Boris Johnson and Number 10 staff asks for a “lawful exception” or “reasonable excuse” for parties during lockdown.

The questionnaire, leaked to ITV News, says recipients have an opportunity to provide “a written statement under caution” and asks questions including the timings of attendance at parties and how many other people were present.
