Justin Madders responding to Test and Trace statistics

Justin Madders MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, responding to Test and Trace statistics published today, said:

“It’s staggering that Matt Hancock has still not sorted this out.

“The Government seems to have taken its eye off the ball in ensuring tests are readily available and quickly administered, with the latest figures showing its taking longer for people to get their results and the private sector companies still not reaching over half of the contacts of those who test positive.

“As children return to school next week it is vital Ministers show they have a grip on test and tracing.”
