Jo Stevens responds to news of redundancies at the National Trust

Jo Stevens MP, Labour’s Shadow Culture Secretary, responding to news of redundancies at the National Trust, said:

“This is devastating news for staff at the National Trust who do such important work connecting us with our heritage.

“Labour warned the Government that its Winter Economy Plan would do nothing for sectors that cannot fully reopen or have lower visitor numbers at the moment but the Chancellor did not listen. This is sadly the consequence. We will continue to see job losses unless the Government act. These jobs were ‘viable” and will be so again.”
