You will be asked not only for evidence of the parties, but also for the briefing Boris Johnson was given in response to inquiries from Latest Page News and the Daily Mirror.

For example, the committee wants to know what No 10 says Mr Johnson should say about the scandal in the media and in Parliament.

In other words, of course, whether there was an attempt to mislead.

Witnesses will be offered anonymity but their testimony will be shared with Mr Johnson so he can respond.

It means that some courage is required.

You must be willing to piss off a former prime minister. Not a small enemy to make, and I know some are torn about what to do.

You can also imagine that the most difficult part for the Privileges Committee will be getting the briefings Mr Johnson received when the scandal broke in the media.

It was one of the biggest news stories of our time – and it’s still not over. So what did Boris Johnson know about the infamous Downing Street parties? With fresh revelations from our source number 10, in their own words, listen to the inside story…
