But the PM’s then aide Trudy Harrison wrote to Mr Farthing saying Government officials gave his staff permission to board, adding: “I wish you well.”

Afghans who risked their lives working with Britain were left trapped.

Labour MP Chris Bryant fumed: “The Prime Minister’s fingers are all over this.”

But No10 said Ms Harrison acted without the PM’s knowledge.
