Rebecca Long Bailey comments on GMB’s report on Amazon’s public sector contracts

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s  Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on GMB’s report on Amazon’s public sector contracts, said:

“It is shocking that the government has spent millions with a company that makes massive profits while mistreating its workers and paying barely any tax.

“Labour in government will insist that that when taxpayer funded public services and goods are delivered by private companies, they operate to the highest standards, with a public service ethos and not simply in the interests of shareholders. We will clamp down on tax avoidance and evasion, and implement our Tax Transparency and Enforcement Programme to build an economy that works for the many, not the few.”
