Boris Johnson Ordered To Hand Partygate Evidence To Privileges Committee

Boris Johnson has been ordered to hand over a large number of documents, including his diaries, to MPs investigating whether he lied to Parliament about Partygate.

The Commons Privileges Committee is investigating whether the Prime Minister misled Parliament when he said there had been no parties breaking the lockdown at No 10.

If MPs decide that the outgoing prime minister knew he was not telling the truth, they can recommend that he be suspended or expelled from the House of Commons.

The committee, led by veteran Labor MP Harriet Harman, has called for the following documents by August 15.

The committee is expected to begin oral evidence sessions in the fall.

It has been decided that Downing Street staff can testify anonymously if necessary, meaning whistleblowers are more likely to come forward.
