Jonathan Ashworth responds to reports that the Government is planning for further national restrictions

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to reports that the Government is planning for further national restrictions, said:

“Labour warned months ago that unless the Government spent the summer fixing the testing regime then we would face a bleak winter.

“The Government ignored that advice, the testing regime is collapsing and so it is not surprising national restrictions are back on the table.

“The Conservatives’ incompetence is holding Britain back and damaging the national effort to stop the spread of this virus.”
