Jo Stevens – 2020 Comments on Anti-Vax Content

The comments made by Jo Stevens, the Shadow Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary, on 14 November 2020.

The Government has a pitiful track record on taking action against online platforms that are facilitating the spread of disinformation. It has been clear for years that this is a widespread and growing problem and the Government knows, because Labour has been warning them for some time, that it poses a real threat to the take up of the vaccine.

This is literally a matter of life and death and anyone who is dissuaded from being vaccinated because of this is one person too many.
