The Secretary of State and Foreign Secretary was discussing the COVID-19 vaccines.

Charlotte asked Mr Raab whether he agrees with Michael Gove who said those who refuse to get the jab are “selfish”.

Mr Raab said: “Sophie, the way I’d say it is get the vaccination because it’s in your own interest but also it’s in the interest of your family, your community and your country as a whole.

“That’s the way I would frame it.”

Charlotte then said: “It’s Charlotte by the way…”

Mr Raab quickly apologised as Charlotte added: “That’s okay. I’ll let you off just this once.”
