Remarkable that Secretary of State doesn’t know own Government’s advice on returning to work – Jonathan Reynolds

Jonathan Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, responding to Thérèse Coffey getting the government’s guidance wrong about returning to work, said:

“It’s remarkable that the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions doesn’t know her own Government’s advice on people returning to their workplace.

“The last 24 hours have left the public wondering if there is anyone in Government who does know the regulations. This serial incompetence is confusing and insulting to the vast majority of people doing the right thing and trying to follow the guidelines.”
