Keir Starmer responds to government decision to extend the lockdown
Keir Starmer MP, Leader of the Labour Party, responding to the government’s decision to extend the lockdown, said:
“I fully support the Government’s decision to extend the lockdown.
”The priority now must be to ensure we see a ramp up in testing, that staff get the PPE they desperately need and more is done to protect our care homes from the virus.
“We also need clarity about what plans are being put in place to lift the lockdown when the time is right.”
