In the letter, Cllr Healy urges all Conservative MPs to “put the interests of your constituents first, end the distractions and join the growing number of Conservative MPs who are calling for Dominic Cummings to go.”
The call comes alongside Liberal Democrat demands for an independent inquiry into the Government’s handling of the coronavirus crisis, while several Conservative MPs have also broken cover to call for Dominic Cummings to quit, amid claims he broke coronavirus lockdown rules twice.
Cllr Healy said;
“People right across Beverley have made incredible sacrifices to stop the coronavirus. Even if the Prime Minister keeps his blinkers on, Graham Stuart cannot be oblivious to how angry people are with this scandal.
“Each minute this scandal is allowed to drag on is another minute the Government is distracted from upscaling Britain’s testing capacity, securing PPE for frontline workers and preventing the tragic deaths in our care homes.
Our MP must stop defending the indefensible and put the health, wellbeing and economy of our country before efforts to save the Prime Minister’s adviser.”
People right across Beverley have made incredible sacrifices to stop the coronavirus. I hope you will therefore empathise with how angry people are about reports that the Prime Minister’s Senior Adviser, Dominic Cummings, has wilfully disregarded the lockdown rules.
It cannot be one rule for senior government officials and one rule for everyone else.
Given the national crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic, I fear each minute the Prime Minister allows this scandal to drag on is another minute the Government is unable to give people clear, honest answers about why testing capacity is so low, why there is a lack of protective equipment for frontline workers, and why so many people are dying in care homes.
I am therefore urging you to put the interests of your constituents first, end the distractions and join the growing number of Conservative MPs who are calling for Dominic Cummings to go.
I look forward to your response.
Councillor Denis Healy
