Boris Johnson PMQ: Watch Prime Ministers Questions Live

Sue Gray’s investigation revealed that “at least some of the gatherings” represented “a serious breach not only of the high standards expected of those working at the heart of government, but also of the standards expected of the general British population at the time”.

The final line of the report reads: “There are important lessons to be learned from these events that need to be addressed immediately across government. It doesn’t need to wait for police investigations to be concluded.

Johnson addressed the Commons on Monday where he faced new calls to step down.

He told the Commons: ‘First of all I want to say sorry – and I’m sorry for the things we just didn’t do right and also sorry for the way this matter was handled.

“There is no point in saying this or that was in the rules and there is no point in saying that people worked hard. This pandemic has been difficult for everyone.

He faced cries of ‘resignation’ from opposition MPs when he told the Commons: ‘We have asked people across the country to make the most extraordinary sacrifices – not to meet loved ones, not visiting relatives before they die, and I understand the anger that people feel.

“But apologizing is not enough. It’s a time when we have to look in the mirror and we have to learn.

“While the Metropolitan Police have yet to complete their investigation, and that means there are no details of specific events in Sue Gray’s report, I of course accept Sue Gray’s general findings in full. , and especially his recommendation that we must learn from these events and act now.”
