Jim McMahon comments on the announcement of a new Global Travel Taskforce

Jim McMahon MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on the announcement of a new Global Travel Taskforce, said:

 

“The Government is again incompetently slow to react. They’ve had months to set up a taskforce, months to look into airport testing and months to sort out the flaws of their quarantine proposals. Tory Ministers are in a mess and need to get their act together.

 

“It will take a long time to recover from the impact of the virus. The Government must come up with a comprehensive financial support package for the aviation sector and its supply chain which supports almost a quarter of a million jobs and protects the environment.”
