Starmer presses Sunak over Post Office chairman row

Rishi Sunak refuses to repeat allegations made by Kemi Badenoch earlier this week, that ex-Post Office boss Henry Staunton was lying.

During Prime Minister’s Questions, the Labour Leader said: “Would the Prime Minister be prepared personally to repeat the allegations made by his Business Secretary, that the former chair of the Post Office is lying when he says he was told to go slow on compensation for postmasters and limp to the next election?” The Prime Minister responded by saying the government has taken "unprecedented steps" to support victims of the scandal.

Business Secretary Kemi Badenoch has spoken out about the Tory donor racism row, describing the media's "relentless focus" on the controversy as "trivial." Frank Hester, one of the Conservative Party's top donors, allegedly said left-wing MP Diane Abbott "should be shot" at a private meeting in 2019. "I think this belief that we should not be able to move on and accept when someone has made an apology for historical comments and treat them as if they are contemporary is a problem," she added.
