Boris Johnson announces new India investment deals as partygate debate continues

Boris Johnson has announced a set of investment and export deals with India as he makes a two-day trip to the country.

He is due to discuss trade and security ties with his counterpart Narendra Modi in India's capital New Delhi on Friday.

Meanwhile in Westminster, MPs will decide whether to investigate Mr Johnson over lockdown parties held in No 10.

The government wants to delay a vote on a probe into whether the PM misled MPs.

Labour is putting forward a motion to refer the prime minister to the Privileges Committee, so it can look at whether he misled the House over his statements on the law-breaking events - a resigning offence according to the ministerial code.

But the government wants to delay any decision with its own proposal, saying the vote on whether to trigger a parliamentary investigation should wait until probes by the Met Police and civil servant Sue Gray have concluded.
