Former Health Secretary Matt Hancock, House of Commons

February 20, 2022

Facts

Matt Hancock made this remark during a debate on the government’s strategy for living with Covid.

Verdict

There is an overwhelming body of evidence that members of the government, including the Prime Minister and Matthew Hancock when Health Secretary, have failed to exercise personal responsibility, and ignored the Covid lockdown rules they themselves set. 

We approached Matt Hancock’s office to give him a chance to comment. No response.
