Responding to news that children's free school meal food parcels in Hull have been identified as falling far short of the mark, Lib Dem Councillor Linda Tock has voiced her concern:
The Liberal Democrats have condemned the Chancellor for failing to introduce a comprehensive plan to save jobs after it was revealed that 16,440 of people in Hull are currently on Universal Credit.
Liberal Democrat Treasury Spokesperson Christine Jardine criticised Rishi Sunak's "constant chop-and-change approach", urging him to put in place a proper plan to protect jobs as the Government still struggles to get a grip over rising cases of coronavirus.
Local Lib Dems have raised concerns about how prepared the ports in Hull are for Brexit customs and border changes. Linda Chambers, who is on the Hull and Goole Port Health Authority spoke out after receiving a briefing on the preparations.
She has raised concerns whether the staffing will be in place and sufficiently trained in time for Brexit at the start of the New Year.
Lib Dem Councillor Linda Tock has hit out after the government acted quickly in London where they were slow to respond in Hull. This follows news that Secondary schools in London, Kent and Essex were going to be mass tested for Covid19, but not Hull.
Hull was top of the news headlines for weeks with the highest Covid19 infection rates and yet has been left out of these latest Government plans. The infection rates in Hull are still very high and in recent weeks have seen well over half of schools in the city having cases of Covid19.
The Liberal Democrats in Hull have stepped into action again in a bid to protect Hull's cultural offer, following the news that Hull Box Office has gone into liquidation.
The Lib Dems have launched a campaign to protect the legacy of Hull as the City of Culture after it has been put at risk by the pandemic.
