Despite being written to 3 times, PM & Matt Hancock apparently “didn’t have time” to meet Bereaved Families for Justice on “because of the pandemic” Utterly unacceptable - not least because they have vital insights to share

Truly shocking insights into devastating impacts of Long Covid - previously fit people now using wheelchairs, people told they might not work again, and affecting very young too. It’s vital that Government funds more research & that employers recognise relapsing nature of illness

No-fault suspension would indicate Tory party is treating these allegations with the seriousness they deserve. Reluctance of whips to act shows importance of robust independent parliamentary complaints procedure & the need for parties to have the same.

4 weeks to go until schools open in England & Wales, & our *world beating* test & trace system is finding only 50% of Covid contacts Memo to ministers: sort this out now. Your incompetence risks not only public health but our children's education & future

Divvying up England into "protect, renew & grow" would be a disastrous over-simplification of the planning system. can't be cordoned off into AONBs & , leaving other areas a development free-for-all Let's hit the brakes on
