This government under Boris Johnson’s leadership clearly think the rules do not apply to them – Angela Rayner

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader and Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, responding to reports Dominic Cummings attempted to fast-track a government grant without going through the proper channels, said:

“This government under Boris Johnson’s leadership clearly think the rules do not apply to them.

“Time after time the Tories have shown a disdain for the rules and laws governing how taxpayers’ money is spent.

“Emergency suspension of procurement rules needs to end and due process must be followed.”
