Boris Johnson promised to publish his Dyson communications—we’re still waiting on “all the details”

Boris Johnson promised to publish his Dyson communications—we’re still waiting on “all the details”29 April 2021During an exchange at Prime Minister’s Questions last week, Boris Johnson promised to publish “all the details” of his conversations about procuring ventilators with the entrepreneur Sir James Dyson. This was a reference to a series of texts between Mr Johnson and Sir James, which had been published by the BBC earlier that day. However, it did not include “all the details” or any actual messages, as the Prime Minister had said it would. Sir James says that Mr Johnson also called on 13 March, but the statement from Number 10 does not mention this conversation specifically or include any details of it. Mr Johnson replied: “I promised to publish the account of my dealings with James Dyson, which is exactly what I have done.”In fact, this is not the promise that the prime minister originally made.
