Labour accuses Johnson of lying over who paid for Downing Street flat refurb

Political Editor

Labour has accused Boris Johnson of lying about who paid for the refurbishment of his Downing Street flat. They are demanding a review into whether the public has been misled over how the renovations were initially paid for.

Downing Street today declined to deny suggestions that the Prime Minister received a loan from the Conservative Party that he later repaid. But the use of any party funds has been previously denied by Downing Street.
