Latest in a number of mistakes from the Government – Justin Madders

Justin Madders MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, responding to reports that 400,000 surgical gowns ordered from Turkey do not meet British safety standards and are unusable, said:

“This is the latest in a number of mistakes the Government during its response to the pandemic.

“It is vital that the government produces a clear and credible plan for what comes next to avoid further serious missteps like this and ensure there is a secure and reliable supply of PPE moving forwards.”
