Liz calls for urgent action to allow families to visit care homes

During a debate in Parliament today, I once again called on the Government to take urgent action to ensure that all families can start safely visiting their relatives in care homes.

Labour has been calling for a single family member to be treated like a key worker and have access to regular testing since June. This is so important because, after 8 months of separation, many care home residents are fading fast.

A pilot isn’t good enough: we need action now. You can watch my speech here, or you can read it here.
