Truss says Johnson won’t face stitch-up over whether he misled Commons

The foreign secretary has denied claims Boris Johnson could face a “kangaroo court” style investigation as MPs probe allegations he may have misled the Commons over “Partygate”.

The probe by the cross party privileges committee of MPs is expected to be completed sometime in the fall. Four of the seven members are Conservative.

Speaking with Sky News this morning, Liz Truss was quizzed over whether she thought the investigation could mirror a “kangaroo court”.

She responded: “No, we have these processes in Parliament. The process is now underway. We now need to wait for the result.”

She also said she “did not see a problem” with former Labour minister Harriet Harman chairing the probe.

The committee’s chair, Labour MP Chris Bryant, excused himself from overseeing the report given his extensive public criticism over the PM on the matter.
