Rachel Reeves responds to reports dozens of Covid contracts are yet to be published contrary to PM’s claims

Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, responding to reports that dozens of Covid contracts are yet to be published despite the Prime Minister stating they were available, said:

“It is deeply concerning how much the Government has relied on crony contracts throughout the pandemic, while leaving our frontline workers exposed.

“First the Government acted unlawfully, then the Prime Minister falsely claimed everything had been published.

“It is a basic right for the public to know where and how our cash is being spent. The Government needs to come out of hiding, simply publish the contracts it has sitting around and support our frontline staff with PPE not pay cuts.”
