Rachel Reeves responds to a judicial ruling finding the Secretary of State for DHSC acted unlawfully

Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, responding to a judicial ruling finding the Secretary of State for DHSC acted unlawfully, said:

 

“Today’s findings are troubling and unsurprising, and a perfect example of how this government believes it is one rule for them another for the rest of us.

“This government’s contracting has been plagued by a lack of transparency, cronyism and waste and they must take urgent steps to address this now – by winding down emergency procurement, urgently releasing details of the VIP fast lane, and publishing all outstanding contracts by the end of the month.”
