Boris Johnson has said there would have to be an independent inquiry into the UK’s handling of coronavirus but that now was not the ‘right moment’.

Replying to a question from Interim Lib Dem leader Liberal Democrat leader Ed Davey at Prime Minister’s Questions whether he would commit ‘in principle’ to a public inquiry, Johnson replied:

‘As I have told the House several times, I do not believe that now, in the middle of combating the pandemic as we are, is the right moment to devote huge amounts of official time to an inquiry, but of course we will seek to learn the lessons of the pandemic in the future and certainly we will have an independent inquiry into what happened.’
