Alex Norris responds to Dido Harding’s remarks that ‘moonshot’ tests will not be available on the NHS

Alex Norris MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Public Health and Patient Safety, responding to Dido Harding’s remarks that ‘moonshot’ tests will not be available on the NHS, said:

“Instead of threatening to charge people for coronavirus tests, the government should be focused on fixing the system.

“The current testing fiasco will not be sorted by creating a two-tier ‘pay-to-hug’ system for families across the country.

“When Boris Johnson makes his statement tomorrow he needs to rule this proposal out and put forward a credible plan to expand testing.”
