The Health Secretary must come to the Commons and update MPs on the government’s response to Coronavirus outbreak – Jonathan Ashworth
Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, is calling on Matthew Hancock to fully explain the emergency powers the government is planning in response to a Coronavirus outbreak. Saying the Health Secretary should update MPs in the House of Commons on Monday, he said:
“There are growing concerns about our part-time Prime Minister’s handling of the Coronavirus outbreak and serious questions about capacity in our overstretched NHS.
“The Health Secretary should come to the Commons on Monday to explain fully the emergency powers he is planning to bring in, and to update MPs on the government’s response so that we can properly scrutinise it.”
