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


A

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.”
