Chris Whitty erupts as he’s dragged into Cummings row ‘Don’t call me into politics!’

Chief medical officer Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance hit out at a journalist for claiming Prime Minister Boris Johnson has told them not to answer questions about Dominic Cummings. They explained they have no desire to be called into the political row. Sky News’ Sam Coates asked: “First a question to Patrick Vallance and Chris Whitty, are you entirely comfortable with the Prime Minister telling you that you can’t answer questions about Dominic Cummings? If you can’t give a verbal answer, a nod or the shake of the head will suffice and is there anything else the Prime Minister has told you not to answer on?”

Speaking at Downing Street, Mr Whitty said: “I can assure you the desire to not get called into politics is far stronger to Patrick and me than it is to the Prime Minister.”

Chief Scientific Adviser, Mr Vallance added: “I’m a civil servant and I don’t want to get involved in politics at all.”
