Starmer presses Sunak over Post Office chairman row

Rishi Sunak refuses to repeat allegations made by Kemi Badenoch earlier this week, that ex-Post Office boss Henry Staunton was lying. During Prime Minister’s Questions, the Labour Leader said: “Would the Prime Minister be prepared personally to repeat the allegations made by his Business Secretary, that the former chair of the Post Office is lying when he says he was told to go slow on compensation for postmasters and limp to the next election?” The Prime Minister responded by saying the government has taken "unprecedented steps" to support victims of the scandal.
