BORIS Johnson will meet with the Commons Speaker following stinging criticism of his government’s handling of the roadmap delay announcement.

Commons Leader Jacob Rees-Mogg confirmed the Prime Minister is scheduled to meet Sir Lindsay Hoyle today over the issue.

Sir Lindsay initially accused Downing Steet of “running roughshod” over MPs by opting to release details of the unlocking delay to July 19 via a press conference at 6pm on Monday rather than to Parliament.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock made a statement to the Commons at 8.30pm last night, with Hoyle suggesting Johnson was prioritising his dinner rather than MPs.

Hoyle said ahead of Hancock’s statement: “The Prime Minister should be here, I am sorry if his dinner would have been affected because I was told he was in Brussels.

“The nearest Brussels tonight were the sprouts on his dinner being served.

“I say now, Prime Minister, you are on my watch and I want you to treat this House correctly.”

Today, Rees-Mogg confirmed MPs will vote on Wednesday on the four-week delay of the road map.

They will also vote on extending virtual proceedings in the Commons until the summer recess, which is scheduled to begin on July 22.

Rees-Mogg said: “It’s always important that statements are made to this House and (Hancock) was here yesterday to answer questions.

“But I understand that Mr Speaker you are seeing the Prime Minister later on today to discuss this and to ensure everything is done as it ought to be done.

“I am confident the Prime Minister follows the ministerial code in all his doings.”

The ministerial code expects major announcements should be made first in Parliament.
