Boris Johnson makes last-minute representations to Privileges Committee

A spokesman for the committee said it was “dealing with” submissions received from the former prime minister at 11.57pm on Monday.

Boris Johnson has made last-minute representations to the Privileges Committee before it publishes a report expected to find that he deliberately misled Parliament.

A spokesman for the committee said it was “dealing with” submissions received from the former prime minister at 11.57pm on Monday.

The group of MPs was expected to publish its report this week after Mr Johnson quit Parliament on Friday having received a draft copy of its findings.

In a 1,000-word exit statement, the former prime minister accused the committee, chaired by Harriet Harman but with a Conservative majority, of “bias” and likened it to a “kangaroo court”.

A committee spokesman: “A letter enclosing further representations from Mr Johnson was received by the committee at 11.57pm last night.

“The committee is dealing with these and will report promptly.”
