Thank you for your email regarding Dominic Cummings.
The national effort in following the guidelines set out by Public Health England has gone a long way towards our success in flattening the curve, and ensuring the NHS is not overwhelmed.
I recognise the personal sacrifices that you have made through a difficult and challenging time. Mr Cummings was himself dealing with the difficulties and challenges of child care. Based on the facts in the public domain I do not believe these are sufficient grounds for resignation, nor do I believe much is gained by media scalp hunting.
I understand the concerns you have raised are genuine ones, and I believe they should be represented to those in charge. As such, I have copied correspondence on this subject to the Prime Minister's Office for comment and have asked them to get in touch with directly with their response.
Thank you again for taking the time to get in touch with me.
EDWARD LEIGH MP
