Labour: Testing shortfall is disrupting education and work

Shadow Education Secretary Kate Green says a lack of access to coronavirus testing for school pupils and teachers is causing significant disruption to education, as well as the jobs of family members.

She added that pupils needed "very swift testing" to be accessible to avoid prolonged disruption to their education.

Labour: Privatised Covid-19 testing shortfall was avoidable

Shadow Education Secretary Kate Green says the decision to privatise the Covid-19 testing and contact tracing infrastructure has been a 'mistake', as it does not maximise pre-existing resources like NHS laboratories and local public health teams. She added that the surge in demand for testing was wholly predictable, particularly as the government made the decision to have schools return and businesses reopen. Report by Connerv.
