Rachel Reeves – 2021 Comments on Cronyism

The comments made by Rachel Reeves, the Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, on 21 April 2021.

NHS nurses worked on our frontlines to protect us – but it’s a chum of the Prime Minister who has his phone number that gets offered a tax break, while they got a pay cut.

Revelations today seem to confirm a growing feeling that if one has access to a telephone number of someone like the Prime Minister or the Chancellor of the Exchequer, then they are able to gain special treatment, potentially even significant financial ones.

We need the Prime Minister to appear before the Liaison Committee immediately, and for a thorough investigation into his conduct on this matter.

Boris Johnson should also stick to the commitment he made this week in Prime Minister Questions and publish his text messages with other business leaders immediately.
