During the Prime Minister's statement today, I highlighted that these vaccinations are a way out of this pandemic, but we must ensure that rural areas, such as Rother, are included in the roll out.
Watch my question and his response below:
"Every vaccination jab in the arm should be viewed as a pupil who can return to the classroom. It is vital that we view it through that equation.
I say to the Prime Minister that I have not always followed him through the Division Lobbies on the restrictions, but I will do so today because it clear to me that the vaccination changes the game and rids us of this pandemic. I ask him to ensure that the vaccination is available to rural areas, such as rural Rother which I represent, where we do not have a GP network or a hub in place as yet."

"I am really grateful to my hon. Friend for his support and for what he has just said. We want to roll out the vaccine across the whole country as fast as possible. It is, I hope, common ground in the House today that we are right as a country to first put jabs into the arms of those who are most at risk of mortality. That is the way to reduce the death toll and, indeed, to get our country back on its feet as fast as possible."
