Rachel Reeves responds to The Times’s report that Gov’t has secret dossier on the impact of coronavirus on the economy

Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, responding to The Times’s report that Government has drawn up a secret dossier on the impact of coronavirus on the economy, said:

“The Government cannot keep information about the risks facing our economy and jobs secret.

“At a moment of national crisis, businesses need maximum transparency, openness – and frankly support from the government.

 “Failure to do these things will put even more jobs at risk, harm the economy and undermine vital trust in this government.”
