UK Health Minister Edward Argar has stoop up for MPs who fail to wear masks in Parliament, claiming they can make their own decision on whether to follow guidance.
Commons leader Jacob Rees-Mogg has also claimed that Tory MPs don’t need to wear masks during debates…because they know each other. He said the party’s “convivial, fraternal spirit” meant they were acting in line with government Covid guidance.

RT reports: Speaking on Thursday, Argar rebuffed criticism that MPs are not following government guidance by claiming that politicians are entitled to adopt an “informed view” about whether advice to wear one in enclosed places applies to Parliament.
“There’s clearly a leadership role for members of Parliament on all sides,” Argar said, adding, “I think it’s for those individual members of Parliament to read the guidance, consider it, bear in mind what Sajid [Javid] has said, and reach their own views.”
Conservative MPs have largely stopped wearing masks during debates in the House of Commons, while opposition politicians were seen without face coverings during the indoor Labour Party conference earlier this year.
The defence put forward by Argar comes after the UK’s Health Secretary, Sajid Javid, urged the public in England to wear face coverings in “crowded” areas for the foreseeable future amid rising Covid cases and fatalities in the UK.
Issuing a warning, Javid stated at the Downing Street press conference that Covid restrictions would be “more likely” to be legally reintroduced if people fail to take proper safety precautions, such as wearing masks “when they really should.”
Liberal Democrats spokesperson Layla Moran blasted the Conservative government for showing “utter hypocrisy” by advising people to wear masks “while Conservative MPs refuse to do so.”
