Angela Rayner responds to Lord Bethell’s undeclared meetings

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader and Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, responding to Lord Bethell’s undeclared meetings, said:

“Lord Bethell must be sacked immediately and this racket must end now. Conservative Ministers think that there is one rule for them and another for the rest of us, and the stench of sleaze coming from the heart of government is overpowering.

“Boris Johnson already showed that he lacks the leadership qualities required of a Prime Minister by failing to sack Matt Hancock.

“We need a full and independent inquiry into the private emails and undeclared meetings across government that have seen taxpayers’ money handed out to Conservative cronies and the sleaze that is polluting our democracy.”
