Dominic Raab commits to resigning if bullying complaints are upheld

Deputy prime minister Dominic Raab will have no choice but to resign at the end of the independent inquiry into bullying allegations, it has been claimed.

A senior Cabinet Office official told colleagues that Mr Raab is “toast” when the process concludes later this month, according to The Sunday Times.

Officials close to Adam Tolley KC’s probe are said to have been “shocked” by some of the claims – including staff being sick before meetings with Mr Raab and regularly left in tears.
