Matt Hancock the health secretary who pulled out of the leadership race on Friday is to back Boris Johnson to be the next prime minister.

Endorsing team Johnson will provide him an extra boost. On Sunday Johnson was criticised for not appearing on Channel 4’s televised leadership debate.

Writing in the Times Hancock said, “Having considered all the options, I’m backing Boris Johnson as the best candidate to unite the Conservative party, so we can deliver Brexit and then unite the country behind an open, ambitious, forward-looking agenda, delivered with the energy that gets stuff done.”

He added, “We need that unity in the Conservative party, and then in the country. Let’s move forward.”
