Angela Rayner – 2021 Comments on Ministers Deleting Messages

The comments made by Angela Rayner, the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, on 12 October 2021.

This appears to be unlawful and in breach of legislation relating to public inquiries, freedom of information and public records.

Ministers must not govern by private messages that are then deleted. This is completely undemocratic and an attack on transparency and accountability.

Yet again the Tories are doing everything they can to cover up their dodgy dealings and avoid being held to account for their failures.
