• Government’s slow responce to Covid-19

    As Keir Starmer said at Prime Minister’s Questions today, there is growing concern about the Government’s slow progress on Covid-19 testing and PPE, the lack of a coherent strategy for the next phase of the fight against coronavirus and coming out of lockdown, and the real disparities we’re now seeing between Ministers’ words and actions.
    Throughout this emergency, Labour as a constructive Opposition has rightly recognised the responsibilities we have to work collaboratively with the Government; backing it where it is right, in order to save both lives and livelihoods, but also holding it accountable and scrutinising its decisions.
    As our brave NHS staff, key workers and the wider public continue to make such huge sacrifices to ensure our communities remain safe, Ministers must now do their jobs and provide the clarity, leadership and action needed for us to move forward in this unprecedented national emergency.
