Angela Rayner responds to new evidence showing that the Government lied about the existence of a VIP lane for testing contracts

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader and Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, responding to new evidence showing that the Government lied about the existence of a VIP lane for testing contracts, said:

  

“The Prime Minister needs to answer why the Government appears to have lied to the public to cover up the dodgy dealings of Tory Ministers.

 

“The Tories think there is one rule for them and another for everyone else. Billions of pounds of taxpayers’ money has been wasted because of Ministers handing out cash to their mates instead of putting the public interest first. Ministers must now publish every Test and Trace contract and all correspondence showing how that contract was agreed so we can get to the bottom of this racket”.
