Davey: Appoint inquiry Chair within days

Liberal Democrat Leader Ed Davey has written to the Prime Minister urging him to bring forward a public inquiry into the handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Davey first called for a full inquiry into the Government’s actions during the pandemic last year in April 2020.

The Prime Minister, who has promised the Liberal Democrats an inquiry at multiple points in the chamber, has recently confirmed a full inquiry will take place in this session of Parliament in Spring 2022.

With serious allegations made by the Prime Minister’s former chief advisor yesterday, the urgent need for an inquiry now has been reiterated.

Davey says in the letter that “the chair and any further members of the panel should be appointed within days”.
