More Conservative MPs have followed Steve Baker in their criticism of Dominic Cummings.
Simon Hoare, the MP for North Dorset and chairman of the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee at Westminster, wrote on Twitter: “With the damage Mr Cummings is doing to the Government’s reputation he must consider his position.
“Lockdown has had its challenges for everyone. It’s his cavalier ‘I don’t care; I’m cleverer than you’ tone that infuriates people. He is now wounding the PM/Govt & I don’t like that.”
While former DCMS chair Damian Collins, who has previously criticised Cummings appointment as a Downing Street adviser, wrote that the “government would be better without him”.
