Meon Valley Mp Welcomes Downing Street “lockdown Party” investigation

Meon Valley MP Flick Drummond says she welcomes the investigation into whether lockdown rules were broken at Downing Street.

Her comments follow claims of a lockdown Christmas party at No 10 and a video showing Downing Street staff joking about a festive bash.

There have been allegations of a Christmas party at No 10 on December 18, 2020 – when indoors gatherings in London were banned unless “reasonably necessary” for work. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has now ordered an inquiry to establish whether lockdown rules were broken.

Mrs Drummond said the actions of the Downing Street staff who appeared in the video were” totally unacceptable”.

“I welcome the investigation into whether any rules were broken. If they were, I would like to see those responsible face the full consequences,” she said.

She added: “My focus right now is helping my constituents and promoting all the good work this government is undertaking to fight Covid, including the amazing vaccination programme.”
