Keir Starmer – 2020 Response to the Prime Minister’s Statement

Below is the text of the statement made by Keir Starmer, the Leader of the Opposition, on 10 May 2020.

This statement raises more questions than it answers, and we see the prospect of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland pulling in different directions.

The Prime Minister appears to be effectively telling millions of people to go back to work without a clear plan for safety or clear guidance as to how to get there without using public transport.

What the country wanted tonight was clarity and consensus, but we haven’t got either of those.
