Welsh Conservative response to parliamentary committee Covid report
Commenting, Welsh Conservative and Shadow Health Minister Russell George MS said:
“The pandemic was an unprecedented crisis and as these reports show decision-makers in government followed the science and evidence provided by experts.
“And while the excellent vaccine procurement programme by the British Government is recognised, ministers are right to note the need to learn lessons from the difficulties and challenges of the past 18 months.
“However, these lessons cannot only be learnt in Whitehall when there are other governments across the UK that were responsible for their own decisions, including Labour in Cardiff Bay.
“Indeed, what this report – which focusses entirely on the British Government’s response – shows is why we need a Wales-specific Covid inquiry, so that the Labour Government can also receive the due scrutiny that every democracy deserves.”
