More false claims by Johnson

Prime Minister's Office did not have the information requested.

Dear Prime Minister's Office,

In March 2021 Boris Johnson claimed that Kier Starmer voted against the NHS long-term plan published in June 2019, which commits to a minimum pay rise of 2.1% for NHS staff. This prompted outrage from Labour MPs and a complaint from the shadow health secretary, Jonathan Ashworth – because no one voted against the NHS Funding Act, which brought the 2.1% pay rise into effect.

FoI request:
Part 1a: Please provide a copy of the evidence held by Boris Johnson to support his claim that 'Kier Starmer voted against the document in question'.

Part 1b: If it exists, please provide a copy of Boris Johnson's apology for making the claim.
