Health secretary throws his hat into ring as Rory Stewart rules out serving in a Boris Johnson cabinet
Matt Hancock, the health secretary, has become the latest cabinet minister to declare he will stand for the Tory leadership after Theresa May’s resignation.
“Yes. I’m going to run to be the next prime minister,” Hancock told the BBC on Saturday morning. He promised to be “the servant of parliament” in delivering a Brexit deal – a conundrum that destroyed May’s leadership.
