5:18 am
minister believe that applies to him? by mister, mister speaker, of course. but let me tell the house either. i think he is inviting you a question about an investigation, which is, you know, mister speaker, i can't a comment. johnson brushed off calls to resign. you saying he had important work to do. but top of his inbox will be the government report overseen by civil servant c gray, into a series of gatherings in downing street since the 1st lockdown in 2020. so can the prime minister confirmed that he will publish the full su cray report as he receives it? lisa, mister speaker, what i can tell him is that we've got to leave the report to the independent investigators. he knows, of course, when i receive it on course i will do exactly. i want, i said, as part of the report, police officers working here gave evidence that evidence led the metropolitan police to decide they would launch the road investigation into potential breaches
5:19 am
of coven laws. any one found guilty could receive a fine, but the mere fact, the prime minister could be interviewed as a suspect, as a layer of embarrassment to widespread public resentment. neetha the investigates and prove that he was her breaking the rule. then yes, definitely. he was making the rule because a lot of people are dying that time below following it strictly was definitely against the spirit of what we've all trying to do as a nation. and yet, if he's broken the law thing, my speculation mounted about how many conservative m p 's might soon be sending in letters to trigger a no confidence voted. johnson's leadership. the foreign secretary was wearily defending her boss on national television and a 100 percent supportive of the prime minister. he has done a great job and whether it's delivering practice, whether it's the response the pandemic. there's no doubt the shines. come off or is johnson's image is a man of the people, but it's his colleagues,
5:20 am
not the public having to decide right now whether he can come back from this or whether he's become too much of a liability. the dean barber al jazeera us media report say supreme court justice steven bryan is set to retire at the end of the court. current term prior is one of 3 remaining liberal justices. in the conservative majority court. the 83 year olds retirement will give us president joe biden, his 1st chance to nominate a new judge to the country's highest judicial body. how did your catherine reports? supreme court justice stephen briar had long rejected viewing the high court through a political lens. at 1st, dismissing calls from democrats to step down so that a president of their own party may name a replacement if the public sees judges as politicians and robes. its confidence in the courts and in the rule of law itself can only diminish. diminishing the court's power, including its power to act as a check or other bridge. born in 1938 in san francisco right, grew up in

a middle class jewish family. he said his upbringing helped develop the pragmatism that later shaped his legal views. i stephen drive, you solemnly swear. he was a federal appeals court judge for 14 years before president bill clinton nominated him to the supreme court in 1994. every judge's particular obligation is to deal fairly and thoroughly with the legal problems of the individual parties before the court, whether they are poor or rich or helpless or powerful minority or majority. ryan joined the court's liberal wing consistently ruling in favor of abortion rights, environmental protection, and voting rights. he opposed to the strict textural interpretation of the u. s. constitution as endorsed by conservatives. but he believed in compromise and was a famous optimist. justice brier, i think, is a true technocrat in the best sense of the word he believes in
5:22 am
a good ideas, thoughtful compromises and intelligence and expertise running the world. ah, and he has really tried to do that quite consistently in his time on the court. in his later years on the court ry are questioned, the legality of the death penalty and drafted one of the rulings of holding obamacare. his retirement now sets up a political battle to name a replacement. heidi joe castro al jazeera washington. the u. s. federal reserve says it will raise interest rates for the 1st time in 3 years. they were slashed to mit 0. the beginning of the pandemic interest rates were widely expected to stop moving up in march in an attempt to fight rides the inflation in the u. s. federal reserve chair that's your and pow says getting high inflation under control. it's vital to a strong job market versus so there are multiple forces which should be working over the course of the year for inflation to come down. we do realize that the
5:23 am
timing and pace of that or are highly uncertain and that inflation has persistent longer than we than we thought. and of course, we're prepared to use our tools to assure that higher inflation does not become entrenched. william black is a former federal regulator and professor of economics and law at the university of missouri, kansas city. and he has more and what the rate change will mean for the u. s. rates have been exceptionally low for decades from the great financial crisis. and then some disruptions in the money market to cause them to throw money at the problem. and there's no reason for that to continue because us unemployment has is now lower than before. the pandemic began. so a, there's no need to keep the low and be inflation because the supply chain
5:24 am
disruption has gone up in the united states through around 7 percent. so it's a good time to bubb b, trying to make sure there is no extra heat in the, on the monetary side, unlikely that it needs to go particularly high. and it's unlikely that it needs to persist very long. this is still a relatively short term problem. we expect much lower inflation next year, even if they didn't take these actions. so they'll probably have at least 2 near term up takes in the interest rate. and then they'll see whether they need a 3rd residence in northern indonesia trying to rebuild on to flooding earlier this months destroyed the homes while the 30000 people were displaced off. the heavy rain pummeled to region. jessica washington reports from ha,
