Angela Rayner responds to Boris Johnson being investigated by Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards over Caribbean holiday and No 10 renovations

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader, responding to the news that the Prime Minister is being investigated by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards for two possible breaches of the rules, said:

“Another day, another investigation into Boris Johnson for more sleaze and dodgy dealings.

“The public have a right to know who paid for Boris Johnson’s luxury Caribbean holiday and the renovation of his flat. Most importantly, we need to know what these donors were promised or expected in return for their generosity.

“As we have seen over the last year, Tory donors have received a very high return on their investment in the form of government contracts. Boris Johnson needs to stop using the office of Prime Minister as an opportunity to fund his lavish lifestyle and enrich his mates.”
