“All our hearts are filled with shock and sadness,” Johnson said.

“He had an excellent record of passing legislation to help the most vulnerable, whether people suffering from endometriosis, passing legislation to end cruelty to animals,” Johnson told reporters.

He said, “David was a man who believed passionately in this country and its future. And we have lost a fine public servant and a very dear friend and colleague today.”

Johnson was also asked about the safety of Members of Parliament after the death of AIIMS. MP Joe Cox in 2016.

“All we have to do now is let the police continue their investigation, and I’m sure all those issues will be considered at an appropriate time, but I think this is a moment for us to think about Sir David. His wife, his family, and our thoughts are with him,” Johnson said.
