The Tortoise interview: Matt Hancock

The Tortoise interview: Matt Hancock

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

This is a newsroom ThinkIn. In-person and digital-only tickets are available.

Matt Hancock has served in the cabinet for the last three Prime Ministers. After spells as Minister for the Cabinet Office and at the DCMS, he briefly flirted with the idea of running for the leadership before taking on the role of Health Secretary. 

When the pandemic struck he instantly became one of the most visible members of the cabinet and arguably the most well known Health Secretary to hold the post, appearing on television daily to respond to questions, criticisms and challenges to the government’s covid response. Now a backbencher, he’s focussing on other things, such as the Dyslexia Screening Bill – having been diagnosed himself while at University. 

Join us in this ThinkIn with Matt Hancock as we ask what he thinks of the turmoil in the Conservative Party and the new PM (whoever that ends up being).
