Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: “The best-case scenario remains a vaccine this year. While no vaccine technology is certain, since the House last met vaccine trials have gone well.

“The Oxford vaccine continues to be the world leader and we’ve now contracted with six different vaccine providers, so that whichever comes off we can get access in this country. While we give vaccine development all our support, we will insist on safety and efficacy.”
