PM to face partygate probe to find out if he lied to MPs

The Independent says Boris Johnson was told “the gig’s up” by a senior Tory as he faced the prospect of a parliamentary investigation into whether he lied to MPs about Downing Street parties during coronavirus lockdowns.

The Government was forced to abandon an attempt to order Conservative MPs to vote for a delay in setting up any investigation as the scale of discontent on the Tory benches was laid bare.

The investigation, by the Privileges Committee, is now expected to be approved – although it will not begin until police inquiries have concluded.

Mr Johnson – who was away from the Commons on an official visit to India – insisted he was content to face extra scrutiny, with the parliamentary investigation adding to inquiries conducted by the Metropolitan Police and senior civil servant Sue Gray.
