Health Secretary Matt Hancock has appeared before MPs to answer questions about the UK government’s handling of the pandemic.
The session was part of a joint inquiry by the Health and Social Care and Science and Technology Committees, which is considering what lessons can be learned from the government’s response.
Last month during a joint committee session, Boris Johnson’s former chief adviser Dominic Cummings, made a series of claims about mistakes made by the government during the coronavirus pandemic.
Mr Cummings claimed Mr Hancock had repeatedly lied during meetings, which the health secretary has denied.
