Jim McMahon – 2021 Comments on Covid-19 at the DVLA in Swansea

The comments made by Jim McMahon, the Shadow Transport Secretary, on 23 January 2021.

It should be a source of shame for ministers that a government office has effectively become a Covid-19 superspreader, putting lives and livelihoods at risk.

Allegations that employees were coerced into turning off test and trace apps and given warnings for taking time off sick must be investigated fully.

The Transport Secretary must now come to the House to explain why he ignored warnings about this, and how a government agency appears to have become the site of the largest workplace outbreak of the virus.
