PM: independent Covid inquiry spring 2022
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced an independent public inquiry into the handling of the Coronavirus pandemic. It will begin in spring 2022.
The PM said the government was “fully committed to learning the lessons at every stage of this crisis”.
But Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer questioned why the inquiry could not start earlier, such as later in 2021.
He added: “I think the House will agree that it would not be right to devote the time of people who are looking after us, who are saving lives, to an inquiry before we can be absolutely, much more certain than we are now that the pandemic is behind us.”
Before this, Boris Johnson began with the vaccine programme and the patience of the public allowing rules to be relaxed further from Monday.
But he warned new variants posed “a potentially lethal danger” and reiterated the need for people to remain cautious.
It comes as a minister confirmed Covid-19 hotspots are popping up in the UK.
Environment Secretary George Eustice said the Government does not know what is causing the spikes – 28 in England, four in Scotland and two in Northern Ireland – in parts of the country.
Do you agree an inquiry should be held? Should it be earlier?
