Rishi Snack Questions about his judgment have been raised after reports last week that a minister he appointed to the cabinet was embroiled in allegations of wrongdoing.
Labor deputy leader Angela Rayner called for an “urgent” investigation.
indictment against ministers Gavin Williamsonreported by the media organization Tortoise.
“These new revelations raise new questions about the disastrous judgment of Rishi Sunak, who reinstated ministers who left the government under a cloud of corruption,” Rayner said.
“Gavin Williamson has been removed from the Cabinet twice, but he is now at the center of the government’s corporate headquarters, despite endangering national security.
“Given his new role and the seriousness of these allegations, an urgent and independent investigation is required.
“Far from restoring integrity, professionalism and accountability, Rishi Sunak has failed to stop corruption. promised to be, but in exchange he gave us more.” The same old Sries. ”
Williamson left Theresa May’s government amid allegations of security breaches.
A friend of Williamson’s also told Tortoise that he “strongly refutes these allegations” and that he is “very pleased to be able to share with CCHQ all communications with former Chief Whip if desired”.
We reached out to Mr. Williamson for comment.
A former Whip chief of staff himself, he played a key role in the prime minister’s leadership campaign this summer.
He was appointed as a no-portfolio minister after Mr. Sunak took the top job following Mr. Truss’ resignation.
Mr Williamson’s return was widely seen as an extraordinary political comeback.
He was once secretary of defense under Prime Minister Theresa May, and was once held responsible for the pandemic test debacle as secretary of education by Boris Johnson.
Sunak has already faced questions about his decision to appoint Suera Braverman to the first cabinet.
He reappointed her to the position of Minister of the Interior a few days after she resigned for violating ministerial ordinances.
She was also heavily criticized after she claimed Britain was facing an “invasion” of immigrants on its south coast.
The charity accused her of inhumane language that endangered public safety.
Braverman’s comments came just 24 hours after the Molotov attack on Dover’s immigration center.
The beleaguered minister has also been accused of an overcrowding crisis at Kent’s asylum centre.
Sunak told the House of Commons earlier this week that he was “on the same page” as the debate over the choice of home secretary escalated.
But she declined to say whether she had received legal warnings about blocking the transfer of asylum seekers from the Manston center to the hotel.
He was also forced to admit that “not enough” asylum applications were processed, but insisted that “that’s what we’re trying to fix.”
But a major polling expert warned that Braverman’s reappointment could put a hole in his hopes of staying in power in the general election.
Sir John Curtis said it was a “risk” to reinstate Braverman, who returned to the post he lost after violating ministerial orders after just six days.
