Jonathan Ashworth responds to reports that Government is paying huge salaries to management consultants to work on test and trace

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to reports that the Government is paying huge salaries to management consultants to work on test and trace, said:

“The figures being spent on this broken system are truly shocking.

“Testing and contact tracing is failing to keep the virus under control, which makes it even more disgraceful that such huge sums of money are being spent on something that isn’t fit for purpose.

“It’s vital that we have a short circuit break to fix the failing test and trace system and to ultimately save lives.”
