The comments made by Rachel Reeves, the Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, on 16 October 2020.
This is grim beyond belief. While Serco is raking in the profits, people are paying the price for its failure.
If the Government can’t bear to curb its obsession with pouring money into big companies over our local public health teams, it surely can see that this wasteful approach lacks basic common sense and isn’t reducing the transmission of the virus.
It is time to sack Serco and bring in a short circuit breaker, so we can fix test and trace, protect the NHS and get control of the virus.
