In an extremely anti-climactic conclusion of the 12-page report, Ms Gray said: “However, as I have noted, some of these gatherings should
are not allowed to take place or develop the way they did.

“There is an important lesson to be learned from these events and must be addressed immediately across the Government.

“This does not need to wait for the police investigation to conclude.”

Mr Johnson has spent the morning mulling over the findings – which could mark his political career – before it is published this afternoon.

He will be arriving in the Commons at around 3:30pm to give a statement on the development of Partygate.

In the main developments:

  • Boris Johnson is set to rally Tory MPs at a meeting this evening
  • Then he will avoid the fallout by taking a flight to Ukraine tomorrow
  • Tory MPs are deciding whether to send a letter of no confidence

Key findings were re-gathered from the report after Scotland Yard asked Mrs Gray to remove anything that infringed on its own investigation.

Dame Cressida Dick has put a ball into the civil service investigation by launching her own police investigation into eight parties in Downing Street and Whitehall.

Downing Street has not committed to publishing the full findings of the Gray report even after the police close, meaning they may never see the light of day.

Veteran Whitehall enforcer Mrs Gray investigated around 20 partisans in Downing Street and Government buildings during the lockdown.

These include “bring your own wine” in the gardens of Downing St, and two number 10 parties on the eve of Prince Philip’s funeral.

Mr Johnson and senior Downing St staff were interviewed as part of the process.

The Prime Minister has for weeks urged rebel Tory MPs to wait for Gray’s report before sending a letter of distrust in his leadership.

He claims the findings will clear him of any key rule break and “draw a line” under the story.

But it remains to be seen whether the reduced report will be enough to get the mutants back from the ledge – or whether they will hold the sentence until the Met investigation is over.

Seven Tory MPs have so far publicly called for Mr Johnson to step down, along with Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer.

The publication of the Gray report was expected to trigger a further flurry of letters, but temperatures now appear to have cooled.

Mr Johnson loyalists have ramped up support with faltering MPs, while the Prime Minister met a number of people privately at his office.

He has vowed to change his top team in Downing Street and pursue more Conservative policies.

He introduced the Brexit Freedoms Bill today and is planning to publish the long-awaited Upgrade white paper this week.
