Anneliese Dodds responds to Govt’s public sector recruitment

Anneliese Dodds MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to the Government’s public sector recruitment drive, said:

“It feels pretty rich for the Prime Minister to talk of valuing the public sector when the Covid-19 crisis has shown just how starkly his Government has let down our NHS and social care workers.

“Let’s not forget that the reason the Prime Minister needs to launch a recruitment drive is because Conservative governments have cut our public services to the bone.

“If the Government is serious about attracting people to work in the public sector then he needs to show that he values those who already do, giving them the equipment they need and the pay talks they deserve.”
