PM Boris Johnson orders inquiry into leak of private text messages with billionaire businessman James Dyson

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has ordered an inquiry into how private text messages with billionaire inventor James Dyson were leaked.

The decision comes less than 24-hours after saying there would be no inquiry.

The PM’s official spokesperson said the investigation would be internal and not for publication.


No other outside agencies – secret service and the police – will take place in discovering how the messages ended up with BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg.

The messages appeared to show Mr Johnson agreeing “to fix” a tax problem experienced by Dyson staff.

At the time the company was working on ventilators to help treat Covid-19 sufferers.

The failure to order an instant inquiry led many to believe the name of the “leaker” is already known.

The spokesperson said:

“As usual, we keep these things under review and we have decided to undertake this internal inquiry.”
