Calling for a national plan to support families in lockdown

The Government has announced their intention for schools to re-open on 8 March at the earliest.

Their failure to deliver on the promises that they made to support families in remote learning and home schooling is simply not good enough.

We all want schools to re-open as soon as it is safe and possible to do so, but whilst children are learning from home the Government needs to deliver.

We need a national plan to support families in lockdown.

Labour is calling for:

👩‍💻plan to get every child online
👷‍♀️right to flexible furlough
💳cancel the cut to Universal Credit
💉vaccination of key workers
🚸plan for safe return to classrooms

📻 I spoke to Westminster Hour about government laptop provision and the need to ensure a safe return to formal education.
