Wes Streeting responds to the Government’s announcement of no new Covid restrictions in England before New Year
Wes Streeting MP, Labour’s Shadow Health and Social Care Secretary, responding to the Government’s announcement of no new Covid restrictions in England before New Year, said:
“After a difficult 2021, people will be relieved to see no new restrictions ahead of the new year.
“With infection rates so high, the government needs to come forward with a plan to enable schools and the NHS to run effectively through this latest wave.
“The Government should publish, as a matter of urgency, the very latest data on hospitalisations and NHS staff absence rates, as well as up to date advice from SAGE, so that the public can be reassured that they are genuinely following the data and scientific advice and that Boris Johnson is not simply capitulating to his own opponents in the Tory Party.”
