Parliament suspension: Government refuses to publish No 10 communications [View all]

The government is refusing to publish details of communications between No 10 aides about Parliament's suspension, despite MPs voting for their release.

Cabinet minister Michael Gove said the information sought by MPs was "unreasonable and disproportionate".

It would breach the rights of the nine advisers concerned, including Boris Johnson's chief aide Dominic Cummings.

To do so, he added, would "contravene the law" and "offend against basic principles of fairness".

'Contravene the law', my arse - that would be you, Gove. He's hiding behind the use of special advisers for the Tory plotting, saying it's 'personal' when they arranged the prorogation now held to be unlawful.
