Matt Hancock ‘buries’ health proposals likely to displease Boris Johnson

23 July 2019 – Guardian

Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, is to be quizzed after apparently burying important proposals aimed at tackling smoking, drinking and poor diets by releasing them in the evening of 22.07.2019 without alerting the media.

The Government’s Green Paper on the prevention of ill-health appeared on the website at 7.22pm, hours after Mr Hancock clashed with Theresa May, who had personally championed the plans.

Mr Hancock said that he thought the document should not be published at all so close to her handing over to her successor as Prime Minister.
