Boris Johnson is braced for a bruising day after receiving Sue Gray’s report on lockdown-busting parties in Downing Street and Whitehall.
The report, which has not yet been published, is expected to be highly critical of the culture in No 10 which led to the repeated violations of Covid restrictions over the course of 2020 and 2021.
The report is also expected to criticise Cabinet Secretary Simon Case, but he has made clear he will not be resigning and the Prime Minister will not sack him.
A Cabinet Office spokesman said: “We can confirm that Sue Gray has provided her final report to the Prime Minister.”
Mr Johnson will make a statement to MPs in the Commons later on Wednesday.
He will also hold a press conference in Downing Street and address the 1922 Committee of backbench Tory MPs who will have to decide whether the findings are sufficiently serious to warrant a push to oust him.
