Matt Hancock says don’t book summer holidays, after booking own summer holiday….

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has emphasised people should not book their summer holidays yet, despite having last month announced that he’s already booked a family retreat to Cornwall.

Hancock said it is “too early” to know whether summer holidays can go ahead, as there’s still “a lot of uncertainty” as to whether COVID restrictions will still be in place.

He went on to claim that the Government are doing everything possible to ensure the British public can have some form of holiday this year.

In Wednesday evening’s COVID Press Conference, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Transport Secretary Grant Shapps both urged the public to not book holidays yet. Shapps emphasised how there is a chance that even domestic holidays within the UK may not be able to go ahead.

This latter comment is especially ironic, given last month, Health Secretary Matt Hancock happily claimed that he’s already booked his family holiday to Cornwall for the summer.

When asked on BBC Breakfast this morning whether the public should book their holidays or not, Hancock again did not give a clear answer.

Naturally, Twitter has been less than pleased at this mixed messaging…
