PM has decided to go it alone on messaging – Louise Haigh

Louise Haigh, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, commenting on the lack of coordination on the government’s new public safety policy with devolved nations, said:

“At a time when we need maximum clarity, the PM has decided to go it alone on messaging. This exposes a serious lack of coordination from number 10. We need a UK wide approach to defeat this virus, with the UK government working in conjunction with all nations, regions, local authorities and elected mayors.”
