Johnson defends ‘fix it’ texts to entrepreneur James Dyson

Political Editor

The Prime Minister has defended text messages he sent to a Conservative donor, Sir James Dyson, in which he pledged to “fix” the vacuum entrepreneur’s concerns about tax rules.

The messages, first seen by the BBC, were sent in March last year, when the government was trying to persuade Dyson to supply extra ventilators to the NHS.
