Labour: Government must publish exit strategy this week

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has annouced that Labour would support a decision to extend the lockdown.

In a letter to the Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, Starmer called upon the government to publish its strategy for the easing of restrictions.

Starmer warned that “silent pressures on families and communities across the country cannot be underestimated”

The government’s scientific advice group (SAGE) met on Monday and will make an announcement regarding a possible lockdown extension this Thursday.

Starmer asked that the Foreign Secretary commit to the following on Thursday:

  • Setting out the criteria the Government will be using to inform how and when it intends to ease the lockdown measures.
  • Publishing the Government’s exit strategy now or in the coming week.
  • Outlining the sectors of the economy and the core public services (e.g. schools) that will most likely see restrictions eased, with an accompanying plan to support people’s lives and livelihoods.
