Angela Rayner responds to reports that the Prime Minister is avoiding scrutiny over the refurbishment of his Downing Street flat

Angela Rayner MP, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, responding to reports that the Prime Minister is avoiding scrutiny over the refurbishment of his Downing Street flat, said:

“The Prime Minister cannot dodge questions about the redecoration of his flat in Downing Street as the British people have a right to know how much money has been spent and where that money came from.

“If the money to pay for this work has indeed come from Conservative Party donors then the public will rightly be demanding answers over what access and special favours Conservative Party donors may well be expecting in return.”
