The comments made by Jacob Rees-Mogg, the Leader of the House of Commons, being interviewed by Nick Ferrari on LBC Radio on 4 April 2022.
The Prime Minister said that he was told that the rules were followed, but that turns out not to be correct as we know that fines have now been issued. But the Prime Minister can only work on the information he is given.
So it was the information that was incorrect and not the Prime Minister?
If the Prime Minister is told information that is incorrect and passes that information on, then he has made no deliberate effort to mislead anybody.
You don’t for one second countenance the idea that he has attempted to mislead Parliament Mr Rees-Mogg?
No I don’t.
