    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. The session took place from 0930 on 10 June 2021.

    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.
