Rishi Sunak is under pressure to U-turn on his decisions to not attend Cop27 and to reappoint Suella Braverman as Home Secretary, less than one week after becoming Prime Minister.

Mr Sunak is reported to be considering reversing his decision not to attend the United Nations climate conference in Egypt next week.

He had previously stated that he must focus on the “depressing domestic challenges” but has faced a backlash from Tory MPs following the announcement he would skip the event.

The Government’s climate tsar Alok Sharma said he was “disappointed” by the move, while Tory former chancellor George Osborne asked why Mr Sunak would “trash” the party’s record on the environment.

The Mail:

Questions about Ms Braverman’s return to the Home Office, six days after she was forced out, also continue to dog the Prime Minister.

A leaked email threw fresh doubts over the Home Secretary’s claim that she rapidly reported her mistake in sending a sensitive document to a Tory backbencher and parliamentary staffer from a personal account without permission.

The email, obtained by the BBC, appeared to contradict her timeline, as Ms Braverman asked the recipient to “ignore and delete” her original message several hours after it was sent.

Mr Sunak has resisted calls for an inquiry into the matter as Labour prepares to force the Government in Parliament to release risk assessments of the breach.

The Government is also facing demands for a probe into another security issue, amid reports that former PM Liz Truss’s phone was hacked by Russian agents.

Ms Braverman has also come under scrutiny for her handling of worsening conditions at the Manston asylum processing centre in Kent, where alleged overcrowding only intensified as 700 people were moved from a Dover migrant centre that was firebombed.

She is considering housing migrants in hotels alongside the public instead of reserving entire hotels, in a bid to relieve overcrowding, the Telegraph reported.

Ms Braverman allegedly failed to heed legal advice that migrants were being detained at the facility for unlawfully long periods, the Sunday Times reported.

But Cabinet colleague Michael Gove rejected claims she ignored any advice and defended her as a “first-rate, front-rank politician”.

Mr Gove also urged people to judge the Government “by our actions” on the environment rather than Cop27 attendance.

Allies of the Prime Minister have now indicated he might go after all, the Financial Times and i reported.

The sources said that while dealing with the economic crisis is his priority, he could go to Egypt if enough “progress” is made on preparing the November 17 budget, according to the newspapers.

Downing Street has been contacted for comment.
