No excuse not to plan for COVID support until summer. Come clean and put proper financial packages in place now says Lib Dems MP

February 4, 2021 10:35 AM

Christine Jardine ()"The Prime Minister's latest press conference sounded a lot like the Government and the scientists starting to build the case for strict restrictions until all the over 50s have been vaccinated, " says Liberal Democrats Treasury spokesperson Christine Jardine MP .

"The hallmark of Boris Johnson's response to the pandemic has been a failure to plan properly. If the Government is expecting restrictions until at least summer then they need to come clean with the public and put the proper financial packages in place now.

"It seems that the Prime Minister will be faced with a choice in the next few weeks. Either follow the science until the NHS is protected or give in to his backbenches and repeat the same mistakes made time and time again."
