Boris Johnson is to face MPs later at Prime Minister's Questions amid demands for him to say whether he attended a drinks event in the Downing Street garden during lockdown.

New Delhi, 12 January 2022

As per news report of BBC, it will be the Boris Johnson's first public appearance since it emerged 100 staff were invited to the May 2020 gathering. Mr Johnson has so far declined to say whether he attended it. However, a number of Conservative MPs have said this position is unsustainable. On Monday, ITV published a leaked email from Mr Johnson's principal private secretary, Martin Reynolds, inviting staff to "socially distanced drinks in the No 10 garden" on 20 May 2020 - when lockdown rules in England banned large outdoor gatherings.
