The Prime Minister was joined by Chancellor Rishi Sunak, Justice Secretary Dominic Raab and Health Secretary Sajid Javid in covering his face in the Commons at Prime Ministers Questions. But other Tory frontbenchers including Commons Leader Jacob Rees-Mogg and Scottish Secretary Alister Jack were among those still declining to take action to prevent the spread of Covid. It came as Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer was forced to miss PMQs and the Budget after coming down with Covid this morning – for the fifth time.
