Sonia Khan: Aide marched out of No 10 settles unfair dismissal claim


former Treasury aide marched out of Downing Street by armed police after being sacked by Dominic Cummings has settled her claim for unfair dismissal with the Government.

Sonia Khan, a special adviser to then-chancellor Sajid Javid, was dismissed last August over the alleged leaking of Brexit secrets.

In a confrontation in No 10, Mr Cummings was reported to have accused her of being in contact with her former Treasury boss Philip Hammond – claims she denied.

Ms Khan then announced she was taking the Government to an employment tribunal, claiming unfair dismissal and sex discrimination.

In a statement today, Ms Khan said: “Following 14 months of negotiation, I have today reached a settlement with the Treasury, my former employer, and as a result I am no longer pursuing my employment tribunal claim … I am now moving on with my life and career. 

“I have a fulfilling job as a consultant, I maintain great affection for the Conservative Party and remain a committed Conservative.”
