The IOPC should not delay announcing its decision on investigating the PM

Caroline Pidgeon expressed her serious concern at the news of the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) refusing to announce before the General Election whether it will investigate allegations about a conflict of interest in Boris Johnson’s dealings with US businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri while he was Mayor.

Caroline said:

This is completely unacceptable. It is hardly surprising that this Prime Minister is using such tactics, but it also raises serious questions about the IOPC. This information is in the public interest and I will continue to argue that the IOPC should not be hiding behind purdah.
