BBC’s plans are a robust, sensible and wide-ranging response to the coronavirus crisis – Brabin

Tracy Brabin MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, commenting on the BBC’s announcement about more of its output focusing on the coronavirus, said:

“The BBC’s ambitious plans are a robust, sensible and wide-ranging response to the coronavirus crisis and will make a huge difference, particularly to the vulnerable, those self-isolating and those not online.

“Importantly they will continue to scrutinise the actions of those in power.

“This is why the BBC is held dear by so many in our country.”
