As the report on ‘partygate’ has now been published in full, Sue Gray wrote in the document that “the question of names...has not been easy”, with regard to who she has named. However, she states that she has broadly stuck to the “well
established convention that the names of senior civil servants are not routinely withheld in Government disclosures”.
Ms Gray writes that she decided to name “only...the most high-ranking individuals who knew about and/or attended an event, as well as those senior civil servants or special advisers who were significant to the organisation of such gatherings”.
With that in mind, here's who Ms Gray named in her report about the ‘partygate’ pandemic events at Downing Street and other government buildings.
