Nick Thomas-Symonds responds to Government settling its case with Sir Philip Rutnam

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to the Government settling its case with Sir Philip Rutnam, said:

“Taxpayers will be appalled at having to pick up the bill for the Home Secretary’s unacceptable behaviour.

“The Home Secretary still has very serious questions to answer about her conduct and the FDA union’s legal case continues.

“The Prime Minister has shown terrible judgement. It can’t be right that his adviser on Ministerial Standards resigned when he found that the Home Secretary bullied colleagues, while the Home Secretary herself remained in post.”
