Angela Rayner – 2021 Comments on Covid-19 Inquiry

The comments made by Angela Rayner, the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, on 11 May 2021.

We welcome this commitment and will hold the Prime Minister to it.

It must be entirely open and truly independent, have the trust and confidence of bereaved families, and cannot be an exercise in the Government marking its own homework.

We went into this pandemic with the foundations of our public services and our communities weakened by a decade of Conservative governments. We must learn lessons from that, as well as from how the crisis has been handled.
