The government has dithered and delayed, but from today England begins a second Coronavirus lockdown. It’s clear the government could not control the virus with their failed test and trace system - it is left to the people of Hull and the country to display incredible fortitude once again, so the government in London can have a second chance at getting it right.
Lib Dem Leader Councillor Mike Ross said:
"In Hull I hope that Hull City Council and the government do absolutely everything they can to support hard working local businesses struck by hardship, so all those who work for them are not put at risk.
“These coming winter weeks will be testing, so I urge people to be kind and look after their mental well-being. Our councillors will be there to support residents across the city.”
