Monti, an 8-year-old boy from Copeland recently wrote to the Prime Minister asking if Father Christmas would be able to deliver presents this year.
Monti asked: "Dear Mr. Johnson, I am 8 years old and I was wondering if you and the Goverment had thought about santa coming this christmas.
"If we leave hand santiser by the cookies, can he come? or will he wash his hands?
"I understand you are very busy but can you and the scientists please talk about this?“
Copeland MP, Trudy Harrison had been given the hand written note by the boy, asking if she could ask Boris Johnson about Father Christmas's arrangements this year.
Trudy said: "I was delighted to help by passing on his beautifully written note."
The Prime Minister made his enquires, and responded to Monti: "Many thanks for your letter which raises the very important question of whether Father Christmas will be able to deliver presents this year in spite of Coronavirus.
"I know millions of other children are asking the same thing. Just to make sure,
I have put in a call to the North Pole and I can tell you Father Christmas is ready and raring to go, as are Rudolph and all of the other reindeer.
"The Chief Medical Officer has asked me to tell you that, provided Father Christmas behaves in his usual responsible way and works quickly and safely, there are no risks to your health or his.
"Leaving hand sanitiser by the cookies is an excellent idea to help prevent the
spread of the virus – and using it yourself, and washing your hands regularly, is exactly the kind of thing that will get you and your friends on the nice list."
