Angela Rayner – 2021 Comments on “Crony Contracts”

The comments made by Angela Rayner, the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, on 4 October 2021.

The Conservatives have shown complete disregard for working people by wasting taxpayers’ money on dodgy contracts. Whether it was useless PPE or the billions that went down the drain on Test and Trace, they’ve shown that they are out for themselves and can’t be trusted to stand up for working people.

Even as the Government is hitting working families with an unfair tax hike and household bills are soaring, the Conservatives continue to give billions of pounds out to their friends and donors.

The Government should have long since ended the emergency rules that gave ‘VIP access’ to public contracts and they now need to say how they will recover the public money that has been handed out to their cronies for unusable PPE or undelivered services.
