多米尼克-拉布。司法部被欺凌投訴 "淹沒

他堅稱自己 "在任何時候都表現得很專業",他期待着 "透明地 "處理這些投訴,而不是處理媒體的匿名評論。

政府任命的律師亞當-托利KC負責 "確定具體事實",這兩起正式投訴是針對拉布先生在鮑里斯-約翰遜擔任總理期間擔任外交部長和司法部長時的行為提出的。

但根據職權範圍,調查的範圍可以擴大,"由總理與調查員協商決定"。

工黨副領導人安吉拉-雷納說,托利先生的調查範圍應該擴大。"在談到副總理現在面臨的一系列嚴重指控時,絕不能有任何粉飾的暗示。"

然而,拉布先生辯稱,他使用私人電子郵件並沒有違反規定,而且部長守則允許在某些情況下這樣做。

"他說:"我總是以正確的方式接受建議,特別是在擔任外交部長並處理一系列敏感問題後,我總是非常小心地保護我的任何通信的完整性。


He has insisted he "behaved professionally at all times" and that he looks forward to dealing with the complaints "transparently rather than dealing with anonymous comments in the media".

The government appointed lawyer Adam Tolley KC to "establish the specific facts" about two formal complaints that have been lodged about Mr Raab's conduct when he was foreign secretary and justice secretary, during Boris Johnson's premiership.

But scope of the inquiry could be widened "at the discretion of the prime minister, in consultation with the investigator," according to the terms of reference.

Labour's deputy leader Angela Rayner said the scope of Mr Tolley's investigation should be widened adding: "There must be no hint of a whitewash when it comes to the slew of serious allegations the deputy prime minister now faces."

However, Mr Raab has argued his use of private emails did not breach the rules, and that the ministerial code allows for it to be done in some circumstances.

"I've always taken advice on the right means, particularly having been foreign secretary and dealing with a whole range of sensitive issues, I've always been very careful to protect the integrity of any communications I had," he said.
