I’ve stood up in Parliament twice and asked the Prime Minister to properly reimburse our Local Authorities for COVID-19 spending, as the Government originally promised. Twice he promised he’d reply to the points I’ve raised with him personally. Instead, almost a month after I first asked, he got a junior minister to send me a letter full of generalised Government propaganda.
I doubt whether the PM has even read this letter. It hasn’t addressed the central point of only half of the costs of COVID being reimbursed to Liverpool and Knowsley and is nothing more than another kick in the teeth for Merseyside from the laziest PM in history.
The Liverpool Echo reported on the Prime Minister’s lack of response, you can read the article here.
