Party probe

Red line: Douglas ross

Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross is coming under pressure to call for the Prime Minister to step down following revelations about another Downing Street party during lockdown.

Mr Ross has previously stated that this was a “red line” and he is now being urged to submit a letter of no-confidence in Boris Johnson.

Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Alex Cole-Hamilton and Labour leader Anas Sarwar said Mr Ross must act following the emergence of an email invitation to a Downing Street garden party in May 2020 when the rest of the country were told to limit outdoor meetings to one other person.

It took place just five days after another event where the Prime Minister and his wife Carrie Johnson were pictured with Downing Street officials having wine and cheese in the garden.

The email invitation was sent by the Prime Minister’s Principal Private Secretary Martin Reynolds to more than 100 Downing Street employees, including Mr Johnson’s advisers, speechwriters and door staff.
