Bridget Phillipson responds to Dame Louise Casey’s warning that the UK faces a ‘period of destitution’

Bridget Phillipson MP, Labour’s Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, responding to Dame Louise Casey’s warning that the UK faces a ‘period of destitution’, said:

“The Chancellor has abandoned workers and families in parts of the country under local restrictions.

“People shouldn’t have to worry about meeting their rent, paying the bills or putting food on the table because the Government has lost control of virus. The Chancellor must think again.”
