Theresa May is facing a new crisis [Image: Reuters/Toby Melville].

Theresa May faces allegations of a cover-up after reports that Downing Street deliberately suppressed and made false claims about its knowledge of Priti Patel’s secret meetings with senior Israeli figures.

Downing Street denies this and insists that the first the prime minister knew about the International Development Secretary’s meetings was last Friday.

According to the Jewish Chronicle’s editor Stephen Pollard:

“Far from being unaware, Number 10 knew in full about her meeting with Mr Netanyahu, because Ms Patel had discussed it with the Prime Minister in September, prior to the UN General Assembly.

“I then discovered this morning that Number 10 had been told by Ms Patel about her meeting with Israeli foreign office official Yuval Rotem in New York and had specifically asked her not to include it.

“It is a truism that with most scandals, the real fallout comes from the cover up. My revelations today mean that there are some serious questions for Number 10 to answer about who knew what, when – including the PM.”
