The comments made by Rachel Reeves, the Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, on 5 March 2021.
It is deeply concerning how much the Government has relied on crony contracts throughout the pandemic, while leaving our frontline workers exposed.
First the Government acted unlawfully, then the Prime Minister falsely claimed everything had been published.
It is a basic right for the public to know where and how our cash is being spent. The Government needs to come out of hiding, simply publish the contracts it has sitting around and support our frontline staff with PPE not pay cuts.
