We need a comprehensive transport plan to get country moving again

Tan Dhesi, Labour’s Shadow Rail Minister, commenting on analysis from the Institute for Fiscal Studies on post lockdown commuting patterns, said “This analysis shows we need a comprehensive transport plan to get our country moving again when we come out of lockdown, not the confusing and contradictory advice we are currently getting from the Government.

“The footage of people packed onto public transport this week was deeply worrying. But it was unsurprising after Boris Johnson ordered a return to work with just 12 hours’ notice, and no official guidance on how workers can keep safe and no measures in place to deal with demand.”
