Thank you to everyone who has contacted me about Dominic Cummings and lockdown.
Following your correspondence, I have shared the concerns and stories sent to me with the Prime Minister.
It is clear that Mr Cummings ‘interpretation ‘ of the rules differed from the vast majority of people in the UK, who have strictly followed the guidance, Stay Home, Protect the NHS, and Save Lives.
Thank you for the difficult decisions you have made in recent weeks. I know the actions you have taken are appreciated by frontline keyworkers, in our NHS, Care Homes and other essential services.
The selfish actions of a few, who break lockdown and believe they are above the law, should not detract from the collective effort we have made as a country to tackle Covid 19.
Please continue to stay safe, and follow the public health guidance, as we challenge the Prime Minister to show the leadership we expect and deserve as a country during a time of national crisis.
Thank you again to all those who have contacted me about this matter.
