Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health and Social Care Secretary, commenting on reports that Dominic Cummings is a member of the Government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), said:
“These are very serious revelations and raise significant questions about the credibility of decisions being taken by the Government on the coronavirus.
“Dominic Cummings has no place on the Government’s scientific advisory group on the coronavirus.
“He is a political adviser, not a medical or scientific expert. If the public are to have confidence in the SAGE, the Government must make clear Dominic Cummings can no longer participate or attend. We also need full transparency on who is attending meeting of SAGE and what is being discussed.”
