UK health minister moves to defuse row with lawmakers over coronavirus measures

LONDON, Sept 28 (Reuters) - British health minister Matt Hancock moved to defuse a row with some lawmakers over the government’s handling of the coronavirus crisis, saying he was looking at ways to better involve parliament in setting any national measures.

“We’re looking at further ways to ensure the House (of Commons) can be properly involved in the process, in advance if possible. I hope to provide the House with further details soon,” he told parliament, adding he would meet Graham Brady, a senior Conservative, who has led efforts to try to win parliament more power over the government’s restrictions.
