Summary

According to the report, witnesses claim Johnson and his wife, Carrie, were among them.Hannah White, a former official who ran the Committee on Standards in Public Life in the Cabinet Office, told BBC Radio 4's Today program it was "extremely unlikely" that Reynolds would have sent around the email invite "without the assent of the prime minister." She noted that witnesses were now "saying he was there." However, Dr. White, now the deputy director of the Institute for Government, said Labour's claims that he had misled Parliament were "technically" incorrect as he had been asked "very specifically about Christmas parties."At the time, Johnson had denied knowledge of the now-infamous cheese and wine party, saying he was "sickened in myself and furious" after a video emerged of his advisers laughing about the rule-breaking bash.The Metropolitan Police, who has thus far said there is insufficient evidence to investigate multiple allegations of lockdown-breaching parties, is now looking into the matter.
