James Murray responds to reports a Sage advisor said Chancellor was main person responsible for second Coronavirus wave

James Murray MP, Labour’s Shadow Financial Secretary to the Treasury, responding to reports a Sage advisor said the Chancellor was “the main person who was responsible for the second wave”, said:

“These reports expose shocking misjudgements by the Chancellor during the outbreak.

“Labour has been warning for months that his refusal to follow the science is a key reason why our people and our economy have been hit so much harder than many others.

“When he comes to Parliament today, he must explain his decisions over the last year so MPs can hold him to account.”
