Ian Blackford grilled Boris Johnson over the lobbying scandal which now involves the PM himself after texts with entrepreneur James Dyson were leaked. While the SNP leader pinned down the PM to answer questions surrounding the text messages about ventilator production and tax breaks, Mr Blackford’s dog could clearly be heard in the background interrupting the question. The Prime Minister could not resist delivering a remark about the dog as the Commons erupted in laughter. 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson faced a barrage of questioning from opposition benches for his conversation with James Dyson after leaked texts show the PM was willing to fix tax issues to secure ventilation production from the businessman.
