Jon Trickett responds to Prime Minister’s “private and confidential” letter to the GLA regarding Jennifer Acuri

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, responding to the Prime Minister’s “private and confidential” letter to the GLA regarding Jennifer Arcuri, said:

“With an issue as serious as potential abuse of public office, it is absolutely in the public interest that this letter be published.

“Boris Johnson might think he is above the law but he cannot hide from scrutiny. As a former Prime Minister said: sunlight is the best disinfectant.

“If he fails to answer these questions, he is showing contempt for the inquiry and the people of this country. This is about the integrity and honesty of the man who is the Prime Minister.”
