Matt Hancock should stand down now and trigger a by-election

EMBARGO: Immediate release

Responding to Matt Hancock announcing he will be standing down as a MP at the next election, Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader Daisy Cooper said: 

"Matt Hancock should stand down now and trigger a by-election.

"He's clearly not interested in the job anymore and would rather make money on reality TV shows than represent the people of West Suffolk. 

"His constituents deserve better than a part-time MP chasing fame and fortune. 

"Instead of making a fool of himself for a living, he should be helping his constituents through a cost of living crisis. The country needs sensible grown ups in a time of crisis not more Conservative party nonsense."
