This is going to be a critical week for the country and a key test of the Government’s strategy. I would urge everyone to do their bit in the national interest by following the public health advice and helping to save lives.

And third, a redoubling of efforts to ensure we have a fully functioning and effective test, track and trace system in place as soon as possible.

First, a reiteration of the commitment to follow the science and take immediate action if scientists start raising the alarm. Second, ensure flexibility to allow restrictions to be rapidly reintroduced if we see an increase in the r-rate.

Ministers need to accept that mistakes have been made and do everything they now can to reduce the risks to public health. That should include three things.

First, ministers have not yet got a fully functioning test, track and trace system in place. Second, the Government’s public health message has been undermined because the Prime Minister was too weak to take firm action against Dominic Cummings for breaking lockdown.

Labour supported the lockdown and has always argued that restrictions need to be eased gradually and in a safe way. The Government’s actions over the past ten days have made difficult decisions more risky.

This is totally out of order. MPs are people too and it’s right that they lead by example and take maternity leave.

George Floyd must not become just another name. His shocking death should be the catalyst for change. To build a better society we must stand together against racism and injustice.

50 years ago today, Barbara Castle guided the Equal Pay Act into legislation, making it illegal to pay women less than men for the 1st time in British history. Women MPs had campaigned for this for decades, but it was Castle who acted on it when Labour was in power. (1/6)

in 1970, the Equal Pay Act gave women the legal right to the same pay and conditions. Two years earlier, 187 women at the Dagenham Ford factory took a stand against unequal pay that paved the way for change. This is their story.

Today marks 50 years since the historic became law. It shows the impact Labour can make in power. But half a century later, progress is stalling. We must strength the Equal Pay Act and monitor how the coronavirus crisis is impacting women.
