Prime Minister Boris Johnson has given his backing to the housing secretary Robert Jenrick, the MP for Newark, following the controversy surrounding his approval of a £1bn development in London.
The Prime Minister's spokesman insisted: “Robert Jenrick has set out his account in public and to parliament, including publishing the relevant documentation, and in the light of this account the prime minister considers the matter closed."
