Coronavirus: Boris Johnson to face senior MPs amid Cummings row

 

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be questioned by senior MPs later amid continued calls for his top adviser to resign.

It marks the first time he has appeared before the Commons Liaison Committee - the only committee that gets to question the PM - since taking office, BBC reported.

Committee members are expected to ask Mr Johnson about the government's handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

He is also likely to be asked about his aide Dominic Cummings' controversial lockdown trip to County Durham.

More than 35 Tory MPs have called for Mr Cummings to resign or be fired after his 260-mile journey came to light.
