Labour’s Deputy Leader Angela Rayner, commenting on the news that the Prime Minister has cancelled the press briefings from the taxpayer funded £2.6m briefing room which were promised to the public, said:

 

“Boris Johnson is clearly running scared of scrutiny and questions about Tory sleaze and dodgy lobbying.

 

“Instead of wasting millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money on a pointless vanity project the Prime Minister should have used the money to give our NHS heroes a pay rise.”
