MET POLICE PARTYGATE QUESTIONNAIRE

(only for use by Downing Street staff/residents)

CONFIDENTIAL

As an employee/resident of Downing Street, you are required to complete a questionnaire regarding your attendance at any/all social events that took place on the premises during Covid lockdown.

You will need to complete one questionnaire for every party, gathering or work event, including those taking place in the Downing Street gardens. Further copies of this questionnaire are available on request, if the 10 copies supplied are insufficient.

All the questions are multiple choice – please select one answer per question, except where specified “tick all that apply”.

You have seven days to respond. Failure to answer the questions truthfully could result in a more in-depth questionnaire, a Police interrogation, a severe telling off and/or a fixed penalty fine.

If you are in possession of any photographs/videos of the proceedings, please email them directly to the Met Police Partygate Investigations Team. They will not be used publicly without your express permission, though may be shared amongst colleagues in Met locker rooms. Please tag any officers/colleagues whose names (or nicknames) you know.

NB. You need not include any images taken using the Downing St photocopier.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this questionnaire. If we are satisfied with your answers, you will not hear from us again in this regard. If we are not satisfied, your next interview will be conducted face-to-face, either at your place of work or on Police premises.

We apologise in advance for any delays caused by the resignation and replacement of our leader. We are sure you will appreciate the position this puts us in, considering you may well find yourself without a leader/out of a job yourself very soon.

I hereby testify that I was not coerced or coached on the completion of this questionnaire. To the best of my knowledge, the answers I have provided are truthful and complete. And I’m very, very sorry.
