Boris Johnson refuses to say if chief whip will keep job after Nusrat Ghani allegations

Boris Johnson has refused to confirm if his chief whip Mark Spencer will keep his job after claims that a minister was sacked because of her “Muslimness”.

The prime minister has ordered an enquiry into Nusrat Ghani’s bombshell allegation, which rocked No 10 over the weekend.

Ms Ghani claims a government whip told her “Muslimness was raised as an issue” when she was sacked as a minister in 2020.

“This is something I take personally extremely seriously... we must wait and see what the investigation produces,” Mr Johnson said when asked about the future of his chief whip.
