Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

BORIS JOHN­SON has been forced to apol­o­gise to MPs for fail­ing to de­clare more than £52,000 in in­come after the Com­mons stan­dards watch­dog sug­gested an “over-ca­sual at­ti­tude” to the rules.

The former for­eign sec­re­tary of­fered a “full and un­re­served” apol­ogy in a 35-sec­ond state­ment in the House of Com­mons yes­ter­day.

The Com­mons Com­mit­tee on Stan­dards said Mr John­son broke House rules by fail­ing to reg­is­ter pay­ments within the re­quired timetable nine times.
