Rachel Reeves responds to reports that a firm linked to the Health Secretary’s family has been awarded a multi-million pound Covid-19 testing contract

Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, responding to reports that a firm linked to the Health Secretary’s family has been awarded a multi-million pound Covid-19 testing contract, said:

“This raises yet another serious question on the growing catalogue of cronyism at the heart of this Government’s procurement process. 

“Week after week this Tory government are urged to be more transparent, yet week on week we see more stories like this. They must clean up their crony contracting now, as Labour has repeatedly called on them to do.”
