Eddie Mair raises questions in response to Matt Hancock's briefing
There was lots of discussion in 2021 around the Government spending £2.6m on a White House-style press briefing room.
LBC will be with you across the festive period with a range of special shows and guests - you can listen live on Global Player.
Referring to the room in response to a Covid briefing on April 28th held by then Health Secretary Matt Hancock, Eddie Mair said: "So what is the point of spending £2.6million when Ministers seem to feel they can simply ignore questions?
"And let's keep in mind that the journalists anyway have their microphones muted after the first question is asked."
Listen above to what Eddie had to say.
Thank you for listening to LBC through the year. Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.
