Health Secretary Sajid Javid agreed that parliamentarians should lead by example by wearing face masks in municipalities.
Asked at a Downing Street press conference about many conservatives who don’t, he said politicians should “lead by example.”
MPs have not been forced to use face covers since Parliament cut limits on the number of their participants in debates over the summer.
But the unions representing the workers of the municipalities have demanded that the rules change.
- Most Tory MPs drop their masks when Commons returns
More Labor and SNP MPs than conservative MPs have been seen wearing masks since full sittings returned.
At the press conference, Javid was asked if there was a “difference between what people are told to do and the behavior of some high-level public figures” and recalled that “no one” on the government bench had worn a mask the questions of the Prime Minister.
“I think it’s a very fair point,” he replied.
“As I said, we all have our part to play in this and we, the people standing on this stage, play our public roles as secretary of state, as someone in the NHS, as head of UKHSA (UK Health Security Agency).
“We also have a role to play in setting an example as individuals too, I think that’s a very fair point and I’m sure a lot of people will have heard from you.”
