Jonathan Reynolds – 2020 Comments at Data Breach at DWP

The comments made by Jonathan Reynolds, the Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, on 11 November 2020.

There must be an urgent internal investigation into how this breach happened, why the information was in the public domain for so long and what steps the Government will be taking to restore people’s trust.

This breach not only damages public trust in the Government but may also mean more taxpayers money is wasted due to Government incompetence.

An apology and inquiry are urgently needed to ensure this never happens again.
