UK Speaker of Parliament Allows Debate on Johnson

British House of Commons Speaker Lindsay Hoyle will allow the opposition Labor party to debate on Thursday whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson has misled parliament with his violations of the corona rules.

 

The prime minister was fined for this and will apologize to politicians on Tuesday.

Holey said it is not up to him to determine whether Johnson has been disparaging in parliament about parties and gatherings at his home and office in Downing Street during the lockdown. “My role is to assess whether there is a questionable case that needs to be examined.”

Labor leader Keir Starmer is therefore entitled to submit a motion to request that debate. The text will be published on Wednesday. The opposition is likely to ask parliament to refer this matter to Johnson to a parliamentary committee of inquiry. This can then determine whether the Prime Minister has deliberately misled the House of Commons with his reactions to the allegations of law-breaking in Downing Street.

The question is whether the motion will pass. The Conservatives have a large majority in the House of Commons. As a result, many Johnson’s party members must vote with the opposition to initiate a parliamentary inquiry. But, so far, only a handful of them has openly criticized the prime minister.
