Jonathan Ashworth responds to reports a million NHS face masks do not meet safety requirements

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on reports that a million NHS face masks do not meet safety requirements and have to be withdrawn, said:

“This is yet another example of ministers buying duff PPE that is inadequate for protecting our hardworking NHS staff. Ministers should apologise and ensure every penny for every piece of unusable PPE is recovered.”
