Rebecca Long-Bailey comments on news that Poundworld has entered administration

Rebecca Long-Bailey MP, Shadow Business Secretary commenting on the news that Poundworld has entered administration, said:

“Yet another store in trouble and thousands of workers at risk of losing their jobs.

“The Tories are too distracted from Brexit infighting to tackle the rapid decline of our high streets and town centres.

“Labour will support retail by placing it at the heart of our industrial strategy and radically reform the business rates system. It’s time for the Tories to step up to the challenge of rescuing our high streets.”
