Another Conservative MP calls for Cummings to go

David Simmonds, the Conservative MP for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner, has added his voice to calls for Dominic Cummings to stand down.

In an email to a constituent seen by the PA news agency, Mr Simmonds wrote: “Whilst the facts of Mr Cummings’ situation are disputed and there are ongoing investigations, it is important in my view not to engage in trial by media.

“However, I have conveyed the strength of feeling locally to relevant colleagues, and my own view, through the appropriate channels, that Mr Cummings should step down.

“I would of course welcome an independent investigation to establish the facts, something which any constituent finding themselves in difficulty would be entitled to ask for.”
