The Privileges Committee has been conducting an inquiry into whether he misled MPs with his assurances over lockdown-busting parties in Downing Street. The Times reported that the panel of MPs has sent Mr Johnson a draft of the report which will determine his political future. Under that procedure, if the Committee decides to criticise Mr Johnson, it will not come to a final conclusion until it has taken into account any further submissions from Mr Johnson. Sanctions could range from a simple apology to ordering that Mr Johnson be suspended from Parliament. Mr Johnson, who believes he is the victim of a stitch-up, endured more than three hours of questioning by the Privileges Committee in March.
