The Metropolitan Police said that out of 204 questionnaires sent out over the partygate scandal to Downing Street, two were not returned.
The Sunday Mirror saw a letter to Lib Dem chief whip Wendy Chamberlain over the two questionnaires and the Met Police will now be under pressure to reveal if they were Ministers or staff.

Boris planned a ‘deliberate and purposeful’ breach of the ministerial code which is a ‘badge of shame’ for the government
Boris ‘thinks he’s Obi-Wan Kenobi the truth is, he’s Jabba the Hutt’ and faces being kicked out of No.10 over his ‘gameplaying’
Lord Frost describes the series of crisis hitting Boris ‘like the cockpit of a crashing airliner, the dashboard lights are all flashing red’
If ‘the cabinet had any balls they would go in and tell’ Boris Johnson ‘to go’ as the damage he has done is ‘terminal’
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Jane Connors of Scotland Yard said these two people were still “assessed against all the available evidence.”
Chamberlain asked the Met if the police questionnaires over the partygate scandal were partially completed, Scotland Yard did not answer.
In her letter, Connors added, “We understand the strong interest, feelings and opinions on this case given the pandemic affected so many people in so many ways.
“Therefore, I can assure you and the public once again that the small but skilled team investigating this matter have acted diligently, proportionately, carefully, and impartially.”
Sources told the Mirror that some senior staff within Downing Street were more “circumspect” over their evidence provided to Sue Gray for her report and as a result could have ended up with them not being fined.
Chamberlain warned that “serious questions remain around the Met Police’s investigation into Boris Johnson’s law-breaking parties in Downing Street.
“Time and again Johnson has lied and tried to cover up his criminal behaviour.
“The public now deserves full transparency.”
She added, “It’s important that we find out more about the two individuals who failed to return a questionnaire to the police, whether they were Conservative Ministers or senior officials, and if one or both then received a fine.
“We also need urgent clarity over claims that some individuals failed to properly fill in their questionnaires.
“The public would be rightly angry if it turns out Johnson or his Downing Street evaded justice by failing to properly answer questions from the police”
