According to reports, a second aide approached Mr. Sunak just minutes before he left the stage. He subsequently left the stage while Mr. Sunak remained seated. A few minutes later, another aide approached him and the prime minister fled the stage, exiting through one of the back doors.
Downing Street has not yet issued an official explanation for the prime minister’s abrupt exit, but it is believed that he was leaving early to prepare to give a speech on climate change later in the afternoon.
The speech was used by Mr. Sunak to announce that the UK will continue to donate PS11.6b towards a climate change fund. Sunak also stated that the UK would triple the amount of money allocated to adaptation to PS1.5bn in 2025.
Last week, Mr. Sunak said he would be attending COP27. He then added that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine should not be used to justify a halt to climate change promises.
