Justin Madders comments on Dominic Cummings’ latest blog about Matt Hancock

Justin Madders MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, commenting on Dominic Cummings’ latest blog about Matt Hancock, said:

“Matt Hancock’s failures continue to stack up.

“This latest blog from Mr Cummings reveals the Prime Minister lacked confidence in Hancock’s handling of the crisis, and yet astoundingly Boris Johnson kept the Health Secretary in post.

“He left care homes exposed, has admitted breaking his own Covid rules and failed to deliver Test and Trace when it was most needed. The charge sheet against Hancock continues to grow – so why hasn’t the Prime Minister had the confidence to sack him?”
