Boris Johnson letting down North and Midlands in the middle of a pandemic – Dodds

Anneliese Dodds MP, Shadow Chancellor, commenting on the Tories voting down Labour’s motion on financial support for Tier 3 areas, said:

“The Government had a chance to fix its shambolic approach to supporting areas moving into Tier 3. It said no.

“The Prime Minister said those on the lowest salaries would get 80% of their salary, but by voting against our motion he has blocked huge numbers of workers facing hardship from getting the support they need.

“Boris Johnson promised to deliver for the North and the Midlands, but he’s let them down in the middle of a pandemic.”
