Sir Geoffrey said: "I was very sad to hear the news that the Prime Minister had been admitted to intensive care and my thoughts are with Boris, Carrie, and his family for a speedy recovery.

"It is encouraging to hear that he is responding well to treatment.

"The demands on a Prime Minister at a time of crisis like this are intense and I hope that he is given the space and time to make a full recovery.

"Boris has a very capable team of ministers in the cabinet who are backed up by an experienced team of civil servants who will be able to take whatever decisions that are necessary using the scientific advice given on the progress of the virus.

"In the meantime I continue to take close sounding of what is happening in the Cotswolds to take back to Government through regularly conference calls with police, heads of all the health trusts, country and district councils, and many others who are providing critical services during this period.

"Through weekly Q&As I am taking questions from a huge number of constituents and helping with any specific problems."
