Responding to polling which shows 71% say Dominic Cummings broke law and 56% of Conservatives say he must go, Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said:
"The public have made so many sacrifices since the lockdown and this polling clear shows people think there cannot be one rule for senior government officials and one rule for everyone else.
"The Prime Minister's support for his adviser increasingly looks out of touch and is losing him support with the public and his own party.
"The Prime Minister's judgement has now become the issue, as this saga is confusing the vital public health messages needed to defeat coronavirus.
"Each minute the Prime Minister fails to act is another minute the Government is distracted from upscaling Britain's testing capacity, securing PPE for frontline workers and preventing the tragic deaths in our care homes. Dominic Cummings must go."
