Rishi Sunak bans ministers from appearing on breakfast TV and radio shows every day
- Rishi Sunak is set to scrap the government’s daily media round, reports say
- One frontbencher previously expected to make an appearance every day
- Move was met with criticism from some members of the public and journalists
Rishi Sunak has scrapped the government’s daily media round, with ministers no longer expected to appear in broadcasters’ hot seats each morning.
One frontbencher had previously been expected to make an appearance on shows like Good Morning Britain and BBC R4’s Today programme every weekday morning.
But now No10 is expected to provide a minister to be grilled by journalists just three days a week, or when there is an announcement, the Mirror has learned.
