Boris Johnson – 2021 Comments on the New Chair of the Covid-19 Inquiry

The comments made by Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, on 15 December 2021.

I want to thank Baroness Hallett for agreeing to take on the position of Chair of the Covid-19 Inquiry.

She brings a wealth of experience to the role and I know shares my determination that the inquiry examines in a forensic and thoroughgoing way the government’s response to the pandemic.
