In office but not in power – Jon Trickett responds to Institute for Government report

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, responding to a report by the Institute for Government which details the disruption to the day-to-day business of government caused by the uncertainties of Brexit, said:

“In office but not in power, the Conservatives are failing to govern.

“Theresa May’s botched negotiations and nearly a decade of public sector cuts have forced the regular business of government to grind to a halt, placing at risk the public services on which everyone relies.

“Labour is the only party advocating a sensible Brexit that can bring the country together and end the uncertainty, and the only party prepared to properly support our civil service at a time of unprecedented challenges.”
