Nick Thomas-Symonds responds to reports Priti Patel broke rules on ministers’ behaviour

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to reports that Priti Patel was found to have broken rules on ministers’ behaviour by a Cabinet Office inquiry, said:


“These revelations could not be more serious.


“This has all the hallmarks of a cover up from the Prime Minister and raises fundamental questions about his judgement.


“His actions are all but condoning bullying in the workplace. In any other area of life this would not be acceptable. Yet again, it seems to be one rule for them and another for everyone else.


“The report needs to be published in full immediately and both the Prime Minister and Home Secretary must come before Parliament to answer questions on this mess.”
