Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Boris Johnson to impose workplace alcohol ban in Downing Street”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Boris Johnson has been quizzed by a civil servant over the Partygate scandals it was revealed on Sunday night, as it emerged he plans to impose a booze ban in No 10 as part of his 'Operation Red Meat' fightback aimed at saving his premiership. 

Mr Johnson is understood to have discussed the illicit parties that were held within Downing Street with the Cabinet Office's Sue Gray, who is leading the inquiry ahead of its publishing which could come as early as this week.

No 10 is braced for a difficult week with fears Tory MPs will return to Westminster today having spent the weekend been barracked by their constituents over the row.  

But Whitehall appears to already be bracing for Ms Gray's findings, with the Prime Minister launching a pre-emptive 'policy blitz' in an attempt to push back against the biggest crisis he has endured since taking office in 2019.
