The Government’s handling of coronavirus has been marked by complacency. Complacency led to NHS cuts and PPE stockpile shortages; complacency led to a delayed lockdown, the disaster in care homes and the neglect of test, track and trace.

Will the Secretary of State end the complacency, put public health before private profit, and ease lockdown only when it is safe to do so?
