“Boris Johnson and his Government need to fix testing now.”

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer will miss today’s PMQs as he remains in isolation awaiting a coronavirus test result for a member of his family.

It comes one week after Mr Johnson announced his “Operation Moonshot” plan for mass coronavirus testing of millions of people.

But people have been turning up to accident and emergency to ask for COVID-19 tests as the system struggles to cope with soaring demand.

With his Government facing challenges on multiple fronts, Mr Johnson will be asked about the response to the pandemic, as well as Brexit negotiations and the Integrated Review of foreign policy, defence, security and international development.

He will then later face questions from select committee chairs who make up the Liaison Committee.
