iPhone : The government has been too slow to act throughout this pandemic. It cannot make the same mistakes with our economy.
We need a track and trace system that gives local authorities the powers and resources they need and a Back to Work Budget focused on jobs, jobs, jobs. #PMQs

iPhone : The test, track and trace system is in tatters. Keir Starmer points out that just 5,000/22,000 infected people are being properly monitored.

We will never get on top of this virus without a robust, reliable system in place. #PMQs

iPhone : One of the country’s leading respiratory doctors and consultant at Glenfield Hospital, in my constituency, confirms what Keir Starmer has just said - the true numbers & demographic data were NOT shared with Leicester #PMQS twitter.com/btschair/statu…

iPhone : Late on Friday an Department for Education policy was leaked to the media, I have just made a point of order in UK House of Commons, which the speaker noted that all future policy must be announced in the House.

iPhone : Yet another renewal of the rules which downgrade children's legal right to the SEND provision they need without any explanation of what the impact has been.

I'm very concerned that many children may be missing out on crucial SEND support in this crisis.

iPhone : The Govt has finally listened to heads, teachers and parents and postponed the roll-out of the Baseline test. Now it must scrap it altogether: it is unwanted and of no benefit to children #LearningNotTesting #SayNoToBaseline twitter.com/MoreThanScore/…

Twitter Web App : The Prime Minister was offered the chance to correct the record on child poverty - he chose not to. We can't build a better country unless we are honest about the challenges we face. fullfact.org/economy/child-…

iPhone : This man is the leader of our country during an international crisis. And we wonder why we have the 3rd highest COVID-19 death toll in the world and are facing one of the worst economic recoveries. We are led by a child. twitter.com/kfatania/statu…

iPhone : It will probably come as no surprise to anyone to learn that Boris Johnson has rejected demands for an urgent inquiry into the government's handling of the coronavirus pandemic independent.co.uk/news/uk/politi…

iPhone : Starmer – the figures I gave when the Prime Minister accused me of being misleading come from his own slides.

Johnson’s stand-up comedy act might be okay in the local pub, but it’s pretty appalling from somebody who is in charge in a pandemic.

#PMQs

iPhone : There's no evidence that Covid-19 is less virulent, so while there's less people likely to be carrying Covid-19, should you have the misfortune to be in their presence, the infection risk remains. We must remember that 171 people died today. This is a tragedy. #2m keeps us safer.

iPhone : Rising child poverty across the UK is a human tragedy that requires urgent political action to put right.

Sadly to Boris Johnson it’s just political high jinx. #PMQs
