Today the Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Ed Davey, has been told by the Prime Minister that there will be an independent inquiry into the Government’s handling of the Covid crisis in this parliamentary session.
Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said: “It is welcome that the Prime Minister has confirmed he will begin a Covid inquiry in this parliamentary session. It is absolutely crucial he sees this promise through: it must be a full and independent inquiry.
“Whether it is the crisis in our care homes, the failure to attend early critical Covid meetings by the Prime Minister or his late decisions to go into lockdown, this Government must be answerable for their mistakes so lessons can be learnt.
“The bereaved families in our country deserve justice and ministers must be held to account.”
