The Labour MP challenged the prime minister in a heated exchange at a Commons liaison committee over Sunak's absences from parliament. Bryant initially asked why Sunak did not announce the NHS workforce plan in the Commons, citing the importance of making MPs aware of all significant decisions first.
Sunak responded by saying he often announced what he could in parliament and that his track record spoke for itself. Bryant then attacked the PM's claim by telling MPs that Sunak had previously missed several important votes, often missed PMQs and was due to be absent for the following two weeks. Sunak said: 'I don’t know, but what I think is important – is the honourable gentleman suggesting that I don’t attend the Nato summit, which I’m not being controlled on the dates of?'
