A TORY MP has confirmed Dominic Cummings is in charge of Boris Johnson's Government in an embarrassing slip of the tongue in an interview. 

George Eustice was asked about Downing Street's silence over adviser Andrew Sabisky who suggested there should be an uptake of contraception to stop unplanned pregnancies “creating a permanent underclass”.

Kay Burley questioned Eustice before it was revealed Sabisky was the one who had the controversial opinions.

When asked whether he would be comfortable with someone with those views working in Downing Street, Eustice said: "Look, I'm not going to get drawn into the comments of that individual. That's a matter for Dominic Cummings in Number 10 and I'm sure you can talk to him."

Burley replied: "Maybe the Prime Minister and Number 10 perhaps. Freudian slip."

Sabisky said he was standing down because he did not want to be a distraction to the Government.
