Responding to Sue Gray’s update on parties being held in Downing Street during Covid lockdowns, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Spokesperson for South West Surrey, Paul Follows, said:

“This is a damning moment for Boris Johnson.

“Jeremy Hunt cannot hide behind lame excuses any longer. We all know whilst people in South West Surrey made terrible sacrifices during lockdowns, Boris Johnson and his team were partying in Downing Street.

“We all have painful memories of that lockdown, from not being able to see dying relatives, to being separated for months on end from our friends and family.

"I wrote to our Conservative MP expressing concerns raised to me by so many residents about the PM, parties and Covid rules, reminding him that silence is not an option and merely condones the behaviour. We were told he was waiting for the Gray report. 

“It is now time for Jeremy Hunt to act and do his bit to sack Boris Johnson. No more ifs or buts.

“It will be an insult to everyone in our area if he refuses to call for Johnson's resignation and submit a letter of no confidence in a Conservative Prime Minister who broke the law and lied about it."
