Boris Johnson expects Sue Gray report ‘fairly soon next week’

The PM is among 30 people being contacted about the content of the Sue Gray Partygate report.

Most of the letters are believed to have been sent on Thursday – the same day the Metropolitan Police concluded their Partygate investigation after more than 100 fines.

Boris Johnson is said to be among them, but as of Friday night there was no update on whether he had received the letter.

Ms Gray and the Prime Minister are understood to have met at least once on the report’s progress during the preparation of the report – but the content was not discussed.

It is important to note that not everyone contacted by the Cabinet Office is necessarily named or otherwise identified in the report.

It could mean that their actions are referred to because they are relevant to the narrative of a particular event.

It is understood investigators are not including all the details of the report in the letter, but are only covering a “gist” of the content.

It comes as Mr Johnson insisted he would not seek to block names appearing in the senior official’s report and said he looks forward to seeing its content “fairly soon”.

The Prime Minister said he was “very grateful” for the Met’s investigation, which ended with 126 fines.

The report is expected to be released early next week.

Referring to reports the Prime Minister met with Ms Gray during the drafting process, a No 10 spokesman said: “The Prime Minister commissioned the inquiry led by Sue Gray and has been clear throughout that it should be fully independent.

“As he reiterated today, the decision on what to release and when is entirely up to the investigative team and they will respond in Parliament once it is finalized.”

There have been calls to Scotland Yard to explain how Mr Johnson was fined for his 56th birthday gathering in June 2020, when indoor mixing was banned.

Former Chief Public Prosecutor, Lord Ken Macdonald, warned: “It is very difficult for us to disentangle exactly how the police investigation went and how fair it went”.

He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I think, without the police providing an explanation, it’s very difficult for us to understand why they came to the conclusions they did.”

The Met declined to identify anyone in its £460,000 inquiry.

Mr Johnson, his wife Carrie Johnson and Chancellor Rishi Sunak were all fined during the birthday celebration.

But both Johnsons have been told by police they face no further action, according to Downing Street, and Mr Sunak has not received an additional fine.

The Met said 28 people received between two and five fines.
