Boris Johnson to bypass Cabinet Office and hand over unredacted messages directly to COVID inquiry

Politics

Boris Johnson is giving all the WhatsApp messages and diaries available to him directly to the COVID inquiry, Sky News understands.

The former prime minister had originally given the information to the Cabinet Office, but it had refused to comply with the inquiry’s order to hand over all the material in unredacted form.

Friday’s move by Mr Johnson means he is bypassing the government, which has launched a legal challenge against the order to hand over the material.
