A report by MPs says ex-Prime Minister Boris Johnson deliberately misled the Commons over lockdown parties at No 10

The committee says it would have recommended suspending Johnson from the House for 90 days

Last week, Johnson stepped down as a Tory MP after being given advance sight of the Privileges Committee’s report

In an explosive statement, he called the committee a “kangaroo court” whose purpose “has been to find me guilty, regardless of the facts”

Johnson has admitted his statements misled Parliament but denies doing so intentionally or recklessly

The Privileges Committee, which is a cross-party group of MPs with a Conservative majority, has been investigating Johnson for nearly a year

They make recommendations, but it is up to the Commons to decide whether to accept them
