    Matt Hancock has refused to deny that he lied to the Prime Minister over last year’s care home crisis, after Dominic Cummings accused him of telling Mr Johnson than anyone discharged from a hospital would first be tested.

    Speaking at a Downing Street briefing on Thursday evening, Mr Hancock said his “recollection” was that he had committed to testing people discharged from hospital, but did not yet have the capacity to deliver on his promise.

    He suggested he had only promised to test all people leaving hospitals to go into care homes “when we could do it”.

    The Telegraph’s, Associate Editor, Gordon Rayner explains why the Cummings attack could end up saving Matt Hancock’s job.
