The British government will publish a parliamentary report on alleged Russian interference in British politics after the Dec. 12 elections, British Security Minister Brandon Lewis said on Sunday.
Opponents accused the British government of delaying the release of the report of the Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee, which was approved by the security services, because it may contain embarrassing information about Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his party.
Lewis told Sky News television that the report could not be published during the pre-election period, which sets rules on government announcements during the campaign.
“We want to make sure, especially when it comes to national security, that we are going through this process quite correctly. We cannot publish things during the general election, but after the general election this report will be published”, he said.
