The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “In full: Zahawi statement on the murder of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes and Javid statement on Covid” – below is their description.

Nadhim Zahawi, the Education Secretary, has said the “whole nation is distraught” at the “tragic and horrific” death of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes as he announced a national investigation into the tragedy.

Speaking in the Commons, he said: “We across this House and across this country find it impossible to imagine how any adult could commit such evil acts against a child.”

He was followed by the Health Secretary Sajid Javid who addressed the pandemic.

There is now “community transmission across multiple regions of England” of the omicron variant of Covid-19, Sajid Javid has told MPs.

The Health Secretary told the Commons: “The omicron variant is continuing to spread here and around the world.

“According to the latest data there are now 261 confirmed cases in England, 71 in Scotland and four in Wales, bringing the total number of confirmed cases across the UK to 336.

“This includes cases with no links to international travel. So, we can conclude that there is now community transmission across multiple regions of England.”
