Cabinet Secretary questioned by MPs – about Dominic Cummings claims
Simon Case, the Cabinet Secretary gave evidence – of a sort – to the Commons’ Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee.
He was to respond to questions about Dominic Cummings and leak inquiries. Also the issue about civil servants’ second jobs and Greensill appointment. MPs believed it was a screaming, glaring conflict of interest.
Simon Case is the UK’s most senior civil servant serving as cabinet secretary and head of the home civil service since September 2020.
He will discuss with the PM about the claims that Boris said he would rather see bodies ‘piled high in their thousands than order third lockdown’. MPs want this discussion to be a priority. In the meantime Boris Johnson denies he made the remark.
The Cabinet Secretary says results of the inquiry into leak of second lockdown plan to be shared in weeks rather than months.
Mr Case told MPs the Commons Speaker is being updated about progress.
Simon Case is also questioned about who paid for the renovations in the PM’s flat believed to have cost £200,000. The issue was brought to light by blog written by Dominic Cummings. Mr Cummings alleged Mr Johnson once planned to have donors “secretly pay” for the work on his flat
The Electoral Commission says discussions are ongoing with the Conservative party about the renovations of Boris Johnson’s flat.
